Anchorage needs to modernize

December 26, 2007

Lee County --      A south Georgia non-profit group that helps men overcome addiction needs your help to continue to grow.      The Anchorage is a Christian organization that has helped more than 13,000 men from all over the country fight their drug and alcohol problems since 1953.     

The Lee County center needs donations to improve the facility. "We're housed on a old military site, so there's lots and lots of things that need to be updated and upgraded," said Kenny Phillips. "So there has been little money spent on capital improvements because there just literally wasn't enough there to do that, and we have now sought after grants through foundations and business grants and so forth in efforts to help us with those capital improvements, so that's a major plus for us."     

The Anchorage provides free services. Its funding comes from organizations, churches, and individuals.     

You can call The Anchorage Office at 229-435-5692.
