United Way goal rises

The United Way of Southwest Georgia hopes donors will give more this year, despite the tough economy.

The agency kicked off its annual fundraising drive Friday with a goal to raise $100,000 more than last year.

Volunteers say there is a lot of need in the bad economy, and campaign organizers say it's more important than ever to Give. @@

"We are shooting for about $100,00 more than we got last year," said Scott Tomlinson, "Because we do have a lot of agencies in our community that affect a lot of people who need it, and I believe that if we all maintain the same desire to pull this together in a concerted effort, we'll be successful."

The United Way is always looking for volunteers. If you'd like to lend a hand, click HERE to contact them.
