We all win when basic needs are met – when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable and when people are healthy and productive members of society. United Way of Southeast Georgia’s mission is to improve the lives of the people in Bulloch County by efficiently raising and allocating funds for programs that meet community needs.

While 2020 was a challenging year for everyone – 2020 showed us the importance of a successful United Way. United Way of Southeast Georgia collaborated with many area nonprofits to provide home delivered meals and groceries to those at high risk or without transportation at the peak of the pandemic. They have worked with The City of Statesboro to provide rental and mortgage assistance to those impacted financially by COVID-19. Many of these residents were laid off from local industrial sites or small businesses and facing eviction or foreclosure.

Due to the closure of businesses and companies having to downsize, United Way’s annual workplace campaigns have suffered. It is in these times more services are needed by our neighbors that may have never needed help before.

Our LOCAL United Way is holding a community-wide raffle, SPRING BLING, to help recover funds lost in workplace campaigns. Dr. Delan Gains with Optim Orthopedics volunteered to purchase a Louis Vuitton purse and Anderson’s General Store gave a discount on a 65QT YETI Cooler for the raffle. 100% of the funds raised in this raffle will go directly to provide services right here in Bulloch County!  Tickets are only $5 and available for purchase online by clicking here until Thursday, April 1st at 11AM. The drawing will take place via Facebook LIVE at facebook.com/unitedwayofsoutheastgeorgia and Grice Connect on Facebook.

True character comes out when times are tough. This is an opportunity to see who we are, not only as individuals, but as a community as well.
