Albany -- As the year draws to a close, the United Way of Southwest Georgia is way behind on its fundraising drive.

The charity provides money to 38 area non-profit agencies, including the Boys and Girls Club. The charity is more than $500,000 short of its 2006 campaign goal.

The organization wants to raise 1.5 million dollars to be distributed among United Way member agencies next year.

"The dollars we're generating for this campaign are used in large part to support these agencies. The Food Bank, the Girls and Boys Club, Girls Inc., this list goes on and on. Every single one of these agencies are very very worthy," said Mike Marz.

The 2006 campaign may run through the end of January to give the organization more time to meet goals. If you want to help call the United Way office at 883-6700.
