Georgia Power recently committed to its continued support of the Grove Park Foundation with a $10,000 donation for the fourth annual "Connecting with Purpose" event.
The neighborhood less than two miles west of Georgia Tech in Atlanta is being re-established into a healthy, equitable and vibrant community thanks to the Grove Park Foundation. The foundation is on a mission to break the cycle of poverty by providing access to health, education, housing and employment.
"I think Grove Park is a great example of how a community and corporate partners and foundations can come together to create change," says Bentina Terry, Georgia Power senior vice president of Region External Affairs & Community Engagement and a board member of the Grove Park Foundation. "It's a model that I hope we continue to employ in many, many other communities."
