THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –The City of Thomasville is entering its 25th year of partnership with the Salvation Army's Project Share program.

Thomasville Utilities customers are given the opportunity to contribute a charitable donation automatically with their monthly utility bill. The Salvation Army then uses the money collected to aid people in the community with basic necessities like housing and the purchase of prescription medications.

"If you're only giving a donation of a dollar, it doesn't seem like much. But last year we had 2900 people that were donating to this program and it raised almost $8000," explains Greg Lawrence, the City of Thomasville's Communications Officer. "So it adds up and we can take that money and split it up for people that really need it. "

Customers who wish to contribute to the fund can sign up by filling out the Project SHARE form in their next utility bill or calling Thomasville Utilities at (229) 227-7001.
