Tomorrow, November 13, Georgia residents will participate in a special 24-hour online giving event called GA Gives Day, and we need YOU to join us! Please spread a little love to your favorite charities with secure online donations. Simply go to https://gagivesday.org/c/GGD and search “LaGrange” or “30240” to see the represented charities that serve our region.
To support the West Georgia Health Foundation, go directly to our page at https://gagivesday.org/c/GGD/a/wghealth. Your gift will be used to create the Community Cancer Center at West Georgia Health. We have already raised more than $8.2 million toward our $10 million goal for this project, and a donation of any size will make an incredible difference!
The GA Gives Day website is open now (and remains open all year long). A donation at any time will count toward the annual fundraising total. On behalf of all local charities, thank you so much!
