“Back to School” themed grant will help fund the organization’s “Back to School Bash”
The Gwinnett Braves have awarded their $1,000 grant for the month of August to Family Connection and Communities in Schools of Barrow County. The “Back to School” themed grant is aimed at benefiting organizations that support education or after-school mentoring.
Family Connection and Communities in Schools of Barrow County strives to improve the quality of life for children and families in Barrow County by fostering collaboration at the local and state levels to ultimately bring into focus their vision for all kids to be healthy, ready to start school and succeed when they get there, and for their families to be stable and self-sufficient.
The grant awarded by the Gwinnett Braves will help fund the organization’s “Back to School Bash,” a program that will distribute over 400 book bags, pens, pencils and notebooks to school-aged children in Barrow County.
“With programs that focus on youth peer-to-peer leadership, healthy decision making and breaking down barriers that keep students from coming to school and learning, we feel we are making a difference in our future leaders,” said Meg Loggins, Executive Director of Family Connection and Communities in Schools of Barrow County.
