United Way goal rises

Posted: Updated:

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.
