Jonesboro, Ga. (March 19, 2015) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented its very first grant to Nancy Meaders, CEO of Fayette Senior Services (FSS) in Fayetteville. The $2500 grant will be used by FSS to help purchase a new handicap van. FSS provides many services to Fayette County senior citizens, one of which is to provide transportation to medical appointments (primarily dialysis) and to other activities such as grocery shopping. FSS is the only entity in Fayette County, other than ambulance companies, that can provide handicap transportation. The new van is expected to make more than 2,000 trips per year.
Jenny Smith, Chairperson of the foundation board, stated, “We are very excited about the launch of Heritage Bank’s foundation, Heritage Community Foundation. With the commitment of the employees of Heritage Bank, we will really be able to make a difference in our community.” She went on to say, “The grant to FSS is in line with projects we will be able to help support. The employees and board feel this is a worthy organization of our resources and we are honored to be a part of the project.”
