Albany -- The Southwest Georgia United Way is raising money for its biggest annual fundraising campaign.

The organization needs to raise lots of money to allocate to all 39 member agencies that fall beneath the group.

The campaign goes from Labor Day until Thanksgiving and all the funds are raised by volunteers who visit and write to companies, businesses, or individuals.

While the fundraiser goes on, an allocations committee meets with the different member agencies to see how their budgets are looking.

"We wait til we know how much money we've raised of course and so we know how much we have to allocate until we get into the actual decision-making process about how to divide that up," said Wayne Mehearg.

The goals of this year's fundraiser is $1.5 million.

To help out call the United Way at 883-6700.
