United Way of Hall County invested $25,000 in the Hall County community through the J. Cleon Nalley Educational Enhancement Fund.
Four local groups benefited from the funds.
• Boys and Girls Clubs of Hall County: Will purchase books, computers, software and instructional materials for its reading program.
• The Guest House: Will purchase equipment to modernize its educational space to allow for expansion of aging and Alzheimer's programs.
• Health Access Initiative: Will develop recruitment materials to enlist additional volunteer physicians to provide specialized care to the uninsured and underinsured.
• Good News Clinics: Will provide educational materials and laboratory tests to expand the number of classes, and thus, patients served, in its diabetes education program.
