Activity center gets $10,000 surprise

he Barnesville-Lamar Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia (CFCG) that offers a semi-annual responsive grant program for 15 Central Georgia counties. CFCG received 30 applications from Central Georgia nonprofits during its Fall 2009 Responsive Grant Program. One application was from Ms. Angela Mack for the Lamar County Activity Center in Barnesville. The Activity Center’s mission is to ‘provide educational and enrichment activities that promote healthy life-style development for the youth and families they serve.’ On Friday January 29th, Ms. Mack warmly welcomed Community Foundation Board Members and Staff for a tour of the Activity Center and to hear firsthand about the good work that they are doing for the children and families they serve. To Ms. Mack’s surprise, this visit was not solely about taking a tour and learning about the Center’s work, but to congratulate and personally present her with a grant in the amount of $10,000! This grant will support the work the Center is doing for citizens who are developmentally disabled. After being surprised with the grant, Ms. Mack stated, ‘Thank you to the Community Foundation of Central Georgia for the grant. This funding will be an asset for all-inclusive programs for our citizens with developmental disabilities. I also want to thank the Barnesville-Lamar Community Foundation for being there to support us since day one. We are truly grateful for both organizations.’ The Community Foundation would like to recognize the following unrestricted funds that help make the Responsive Grant Program possible: L.D. and Minnie Lee Brown Fund, Fickling Family Fund, Ross and Geneva Gardner Fund, William S. Hutchings Fund, Jones-Freeman-Ross Fund, Kruger Fund, Olson Fund, Hazel Elizabeth Rogers Fund, John F. Rogers, Jr. Fund, Emily Walker Fund, Walters Family Fund, and The Zuver Fund.
