Delta Community awards $7,500 in grants
Two final grants from the 2018 Delta Community Philanthropic Fund have been awarded.
Delta Community CEO Hank Halter and Mt. Zion Branch Manager Tonya Ramsey presented a total of $7,500 Monday to two charities that provide health and human services in Coweta, Clayton, Fayette, Fulton, and other Georgia counties.
Healing Bridge Clinic in Peachtree City received a $2,500 grant. The nonprofit offers weekly clinics where doctors, nurses and other medical volunteers treat patients, and also helps people connect with legal professionals who provide information about tenants’ rights.
House of Dawn in Jonesboro received a $5,000 donation to fund its Parent Economic Stability initiative. In addition to safe, stable housing, House of Dawn offers educational help, life-skills training and other resources to homeless teenagers who are pregnant or who already have children. The facility is open to teens throughout the Southeast.
The grants were the last of 22 awarded throughout metro Atlanta from the 2018 Delta Community Philanthropic Fund. Now in its fifth year, the fund invests in charities whose purpose is to help families manage household finances, or to improve the physical and financial well-being of young people.
Delta Community Credit has two branches in Coweta County on Highway 34 and on Glenda Trace.
