An Olympic Champion Touts Volunteerism

The spectacular Track & Field legend Jackie Joyner-Kersee came to Central Georgia in support of one of our partner organizations - Boys and Girls Club of Central Georgia.

She paid a visit to the United Way staff and gave her thoughts on why volunteerism matters and how doing volunteer work brings fulfillment to people.

It's worth noting that our region's Boys and Girls Club encouraged about 1,500 young people to join community service and education program - an end result of your support.

We invite you to join the thousands of Central Georgians that supply whatever they can give to agencies and organizations that help those in need in our communities.
