Jackson EMC Foundation awards $63k to agencies serving Gwinnett County residents

The Jackson EMC Foundation board of directors awarded $119,889 in grants and $63,000 to local organizations during the foundation’s August meeting.

Jackson EMC Foundation awarded $15,000 to Atlanta Community Food Bank to provide up to 60,000 meals to food-insecure families in Gwinnett, Hall and Lumpkin counties through partner agencies, eliminating the need for the agencies to store the food and allowing the Food Bank to distribute food at a fraction of the cost.
