VALDOSTA, GA.  Georgia Power, a leading business in Lowndes County, partnered with the Greater Valdosta United Way to support local nonprofits this holiday season.

“Georgia Power (and Joe Brownlee) are a great example of a business that cares,” explained Michael Smith, executive director, GVUW. “With this donation we can touch many of our nonprofits that help our community become a better place to live and work.”

Corporate partners are key to the United Way’s success. GVUW connects with businesses that share its view to mobilize people and leverage resources to improve the building blocks for a better life in South Georgia: Education, Income, and Health.

“We are proud to support the United Way’s mission in the Valdosta-Lowndes area, particularly during the holidays when so many are in need,” stated Joe Brownlee, SW regional director, Georgia Power. “Our donation continues Georgia Power’s tradition of being ‘A Citizen Wherever We Serve.’”
