Port employees are loyal supporters of annual campaign
Valerie Attaway, assistant employee relations manager, says Georgia Ports Authority employees are loyal and passionate supporters of the company’s United Way campaigns year after year. This was clear during GPA’s most recent campaign (which ran from September to December) during which employees contributed $280,684.56 — 148 percent of the company’s goal. Every dollar raised goes directly to those in need thanks to the Herschel V. Jenkins Trust Fund that covers all administrative and fundraising costs for the United Way of the Coastal Empire. Donations benefit the four-county area of Chatham, Efﬁngham, Bryan and Liberty. Employees also have the option of earmarking their contributions for a particular community or program.
