Grant awarded to Parks and Recreation for Special Olympics

 

  The Central Georgia EMC Foundation Board, which oversees the Operation Round Up® (ORU) program for CGEMC, recently awarded the Henry County Parks and Recreation Department, a grant totaling $4,000 for the Special Olympics.

 “This is a great example of a worthy organization within our community that can benefit from the Operation Round Up® program,” says Lynne Tanner, CGEMC Foundation chairperson.  “Of course, none of it would be possible without the generosity of all our participating members who volunteer to have their electric bills rounded up each month.”

  Operation Round Up® is a community support program designed to raise funds to support worthwhile charitable and educational needs within the 14 counties served by Central Georgia EMC.  The CGEMC Foundation is accepting applications, which are available online at www.cgemc.com or picked up in person at the CGEMC office at 923 S. Mulberry St, in Jackson.

  Any eligible organizations seeking assistance in CGEMC’s 14-county service territory are encouraged to apply.

  The mission of the Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for people eight years of age and older with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. For more information please contact Terry Nash at 770-288-7300.
