More than 250 people attended the United Way of the Coastal Empire's 39th Annual Volunteer Award Luncheon on Wednesday. 

The goal was to celebrate the people who volunteer their time and energy to help make a difference in the lives of others. The luncheon was held at the Savannah Station, but several counties were represented as nominees from Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty counties. The awards given ranged from Animal Advocacy, Environment Award, and Arts and Culture, to name a few. 

"Anyone can be a volunteer. It doesn't take any enormous amount of skill, it's really all about wanting to do good for the community, so anyone who cares about Savannah or the Coastal Empire, wants to go out there and make a difference, wants to go out there and get their hands dirty, those are the best kind of volunteers," said James Keedy, Director of United Way Volunteers. 

The big award of the afternoon went to Brad Green. He won the Herschel V. Jenkins Volunteer of the Year Award. A cash prize of $1,000 was awarded to Family Promise of Effingham.
