United Way of Effingham County representatives visited Blandford Elementary School to surprise first-grade parapro Rachel Wyss as a winner in its weekly campaign prize drawing.

Wyss’ name was drawn as the winner of a two-night stay at the Mansion on Forsyth and a trolley tour of Savannah.

Through each week of its 2014 fundraising campaign, the United Way of Effingham County has been drawing for a prize valued $500-$1,000. Anyone who attends a United Way campaign presentation is eligible to win.
