So many will have difficulties supplying their children with the supplies they need this year as they return back to school. That’s why WALB is partnering with The United Way of Southwest Georgia as they announce their inaugural “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive.
As we enter the remaining days of the year and look forward to a fresh new start to our lives, stop for a moment and reflect on the true spirit of Southwest Georgia, the true spirit of your neighbor and the true spirit of Christmas!
Chronic hunger is a major problem here in South Georgia. In Dougherty and surrounding counties, one in four residents are “food insecure” as we call it, many times not knowing where the next meal is coming from for them and their families.
But just as we report on the bad, it is also our responsibility to tell you about the good things that happen where you live — the stories about neighbors helping neighbors, and South Georgians working together to make this an amazing place to raise our families.
