September 17--  The annual United Way campaign for Toombs, Montgomery and Wheeler Counties is off to a good start.

{mosimage}The kickoff to the music of Vidalia's Wardlaw Brothers emphasized the theme "U + Me = United Community."  This year's goal is $465,000 and, thanks to Pacemaker Companies and fund raising events, $183,940 has already been pledged.

Employees at Plant Hatch raised $88,000, Dot Foods donations total $45,045 and Vidalia City Schools collected $10,000.  The United Way golf tournament raised $12,240, Dancing for the Stars and Power of the Purse made $12,000 and the Sweet Onion Century Bike Ride raised $2,200.

Twenty-two community service organizations in the three counties depend on the United Way to help with their budgets.
