Jonesboro, Ga. (May 04, 2017) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented a $2,200 grant to Sherelle McKinley-Thomas, Executive Director of the Rainbow House in Clayton County to purchase a new ice maker. The Rainbow House facility provides temporary shelter for abused, neglected or abandoned children in the area.
“The Heritage Community Foundation is proud to partner with the Rainbow House to provide the resources for a new ice machine,” said Jenny Smith, Past President and Board Member of the Heritage Community Foundation. “Through the years, Rainbow House has provided shelter to over 10,000 children in the area. They provide a safe place for these children to live as well as feed them. Having a plentiful supply of ice is important.”
