Sanford Area Growth Alliance raising money for Colon Road families

Mar 04

The Sanford Area Growth Alliance (SAGA) has begun raising money through the generous donations of local businesses and individuals, to donate bottled water to the families affected by the water concerns on Colon Road.

The Growth Alliance understands the importance of being a good steward in the community to assist where possible when unique circumstances arise. The need on Colon Road is an opportunity for the Growth Alliance to bring together corporate partners and individuals to assist families to provide them temporary relief as they work through the water issue.

“Several members of our board, approached us on how the business community could provide a solution,” said Joy Thrash, SAGA CEO. “Business leaders see this as a way to give back to the community that has helped make them successful.” 

Individuals and local businesses can make tax deductible contributions to this initiative by writing checks payable to the Sanford-Lee County Partnership for Prosperity Foundation. This fundraiser will continue until March 15th. If you have any questions please contact the SAGA office at 919-774-8439 or visit us at 115 Chatham Street.
