The United Way of Southwest Georgia honored more than a dozen organizations for their leadership in supporting United Way agencies.
United Way raised about 1.1-million dollars this year. That's up slightly from last year, but it's short of the goal. The C-E-O says it was still a great year for the organization.
"It was a great year for us, we raised more money this year then we did last year and with some internal restructuring we were able to put more money back into the community to our non profit agencies," said LaKisha Bryant Bruce, President & CEO, United Way.
