Jonesboro, Ga. (March 17, 2017) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented a $1,456 grant to Brian Bouts, Community Gardens of Henry County Board Member, on Friday, March 14, 2017. The grant will be used to acquire a commercial grade garden tiller for the community garden. The new tiller will help Community Gardens of Henry County achieve its mission and also increase the non-profit group’s ability to be a food source for needy families in the area.
“We are excited to support this organization by funding the purchase of this new garden tiller,” said Kerry Arnold, Board President of the Heritage Community Foundation. “This organization makes a positive impact by promoting learning opportunities for gardeners of all ages as well as supporting other agencies in our area that provide food for needy families.”
Heritage Community Foundation (HCF) is a 501c3 organization which provides funding to local nonprofit organizations in Clayton, Henry, and Fayette counties. HCF is designed to support Heritage Bank’s first mission, “Committed to those we serve.” The bank absorbs all of the operating costs of the foundation, so 100% of the funds raised go directly to meet community needs.
In addition to the support from Heritage Bank, a number of other local businesses support the HCF through their partnership in the HCF Community IMPACT Club. These businesses include Harding Plumbing, C & C Fence, Lincoln Insurance, Paragon Alarm Systems, Griffin Insurance, New South Package and Emmett J. Arnold Law, P.C..
