Month: December 2019
Throughout the past year, Georgia’s Own Foundation and Georgia’s Own Credit Union have teamed up to bring 85 Acts of Kindness to the community in celebration of our 85th Anniversary. The initiative kicked off in January by surprising TSA employees affected by the government shutdown with 8.5 gallons of free gas. Other favorite ‘acts’ include planting in the organic vegetable garden at Camp Twin Lakes, surprising students at Green Acres Elementary School with a pizza party featuring Dansby Swanson, and delighting the community with free King of Pops on Tax Day, along with last-minute filing tips.
We capped off the year with a social media contest encouraging our followers to nominate their favorite non-profit for a chance to win an $8,500 grant from the Foundation. Miracle at KSU, a student-run non-profit at Kennesaw State University focused on raising money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, was declared the winner and we know that this gift will go a long way toward spreading even more kindness in the energetic and capable hands of these future leaders!
