Project SHARE Makes Helping Neighbors Easy

January 4, 2018

Georgia Power and the Salvation Army have joined together to help Georgians in need this winter through Project SHARE. . Project SHARE, established in partnership with The Salvation Army in 1985, was one of the first fuel funds in America and helps with expenses, such as utility bills, housing, food and medical necessities. Now communities can help their neighbors in need through the project with Georgia Power matching every donation contributed.
