ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - The United Way of South Georgia is looking to distribute grant money to organizations that directly deal with racial justice in the Albany and Dougherty County communities.

The United Way officials said they saw a need to help the community during the pandemic.

“COVID-19 really brought to the surface a lot of the deep racial, social, and environmental disparities that existed and so we created a collaborative call Reimagine Albany,” said Shaunae Motley, President and CEO of the United Way to Southwest GA.
