LG 365 awards over $21,000 in grant funds

Lamar Gives 365 conducted its annual grant recipient event last week, awarding over $21,000 in grant funds to local non-profits.

Five entities got $3000 each. They were the Barnesville Boys & Girl Club, Friends of the Milner Library, Hope Tree Ministry, Lamar County Senior Center, the REACH Scholarship Fund and Rebuild Lamar.

Lamar Arts was awarded $2500 for technology upgrades while the local health department received $1347.60 for children’s health programs.

Lamar Gives 365 members give $365 per year or one dollar per day. Half the annual gifts are distributed and the other half is invested through the Barnesville-Lamar County Community Foundation.

Members get to vote on which non-profits are funded and in what amounts.
