UNITED WAY MINUTE
We continue with our video series called "Follow the Food" by moving from the bagging of donated food for school children to the place where that food comes from - the Middle Georgia Community Food Bank.
"Are you sure?"
That was the reaction of Carrie Karchella, a Perry resident and lifelong Georgian, when she got the call that she won the Jeff Smith-Automotive new car in our raffle held on January 5th. Carrie bought two tickets out of the 4,000 sold. And that money goes to worthy causes through this organization. Say hi to her in this minute-long video.

Many people wonder how decision are made when it comes to giving out your United Way of Central Georgia donations. Some may think that responsibility resides with one or two people in the organization.
But, as the video below shows, the organization actually recruits volunteers from around the area to visit nonprofit agencies, gather information and deliberate on the amount of money they should received from United Way.
These allocations should match with the stated goals for the United Way of Central Georgia.
