The Wiregrass United Way announced its 2013 fundraising total at its annual appreciation meeting.
Friday morning's meeting included representatives from five different counties throughout the Wiregrass area. Organizations and businesses that helped raise the most funds were presented with awards. Last year, the Wiregrass United Way raised over 2.6 million dollars.
"All the money we raised stays here locally in our five county area here in Southeast Alabama to help people with these programs and services that are provided by the 37 agencies," said Walter Hill, the Wiregrass United Way CEO.
A breakfast buffet was also provided to everyone in attendance.
