ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The United Way of Southwest Georgia recognizes generous donors.     

Target, UPS, and Publix were honored as some of the top givers. The United Way raised a little more than a million dollars over the last year, but down more than $84,000 partly because of federal furloughs.  

"Although we haven't arrived back to the place where we were prior to the economic crash, philanthropy is still up in our community," said LaKisha Bryant Bruce, President and CEO. "So we've got some gracious donors that support the United Way Campaign every year."       

Proctor and Gamble was the top contributor donating more than $300,000. This year's campaign will kick off the first week in September.
