The City of Savannah kicked-off its United Way campaign this morning in the Rotunda at City Hall. Savannah Mayor Eddie DeLoach, City Manager Rob Hernandez and dozens of city employees gathered for the unveiling of this year’s fundraising goal, $220,000.
For the past several years City of Savannah employees have contributed more to the United Way than any other municipality in Georgia, including Atlanta.
“The City’s priorities closely reflect those of the United Way,” said City Manager Rob Hernandez. “In our new strategic plan “Savannah Forward” we want to promote neighborhood revitalization, reduce poverty, improve public safety and much more. Working hand in hand with the United Way allows us to improve the quality of life for our citizens. We are excited to begin our fundraising for this great cause.”
The United Way of the Coastal Empire’s community goal is $8,200,000.
