United Way sets $275,000 goal

August 24, 2004

Tifton- The United Way of South Central Georgia kicked off it's annual fundraising campaign Tuesday.

The organization supports 22 local agencies including the American Red Cross and Meals on Wheels.

"Any amount helps so much. The easiest way for me to do it is a payroll deduction, a dollar a week and you don't miss that dollar a week, but it helps so many people in the community," says Campaign Chair Carla Cooper.

"We can't continue our mission without the donations of individuals and organizations here in our community," adds President Chris Efaw.

The United Way of South Central Georgia serves six counties. Its fundraising campaign will run until December 1st.
