Voices for Georgia’s Children was showcased in the Savannah Morning News recently.  The article quotes Executive Director Pat Willis, Government Affairs & Advocacy Director Mindy Binderman and incoming boardmember Becky Cheatham.

Becky is the Executive Director of the St. Joseph’s/Candler Hospital Foundation based in Savannah.  She was also named a 2009 Big Voice for Children Award honoree.  Becky is working to develop new partnerships between Voices and the Junior League of Savannah, just one of dozens of communities around the state where Voices has contacts and coalition partners.

Voices is always working with media outlets all over Georgia to showcase new partners and innovative programs.  If you know an individual, an agency or an organization that you think deserves some media attention, let us know!  As advocates, we want to help you get your story told to the widest audience possible.

We look forward to hearing from you.
