Heritage Community Foundation Presents Grant to Samaritans Together of Henry County, Inc.

Jonesboro, Ga. (June 8, 2016) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented a grant to Kaye Sheets, Executive Director, and Sandy Craig, Board Member, of Samaritans Together of Henry County, Inc. on May 10, 2016. The $2,500 grant will be used to purchase a new computer server to process and house all of the data collected by Samaritans Together and its sister agency, Helping in His Name Ministries, Inc.

The mission of Samaritans Together of Henry County, Inc. is to model the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by providing rent assistance and/or utility assistance to the needy people of Henry County. This mission is carried out by a small staff using donated money. Their mission is usually short-term help as long-term relief is beyond the scope of their operations. Samaritans Together is able to assist those in crisis through the financial support of local churches, organizations, corporations, foundations, and individuals. Since 1992, the organization has offered hope, help, and love to many Henry County families who have found themselves in desperate situations.
