We celebrate and honor our outstanding CEO for her tireless efforts to better the lives of Southwest Georgians!

When she took the helm of the United Way, never could Shaunae Motley have imagined that she would help Southwest Georgia navigate a pandemic and social unrest unlike any we have seen in our generation. But she took on the challenge and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to provide relief for this region. Her support of our Small Business PPE Drive helped keep small business owners and essential workers safe across southwest Georgia. She has hosted town halls to bring the community together and helped citizens "Reimagine" what they want for their city. We applaud Shaunae Motley, CEO of the United Way of Southwest Georgia for her courageous leadership during these difficult times.

Had another great food distribution this morning made possible by several United Way of Southwest GA and community partners. Nice way to cap off that effort by participating in the Campaign Kickoff.
