Grants Go To Gwinnett Organizations

The Jackson EMC Foundation board of directors awarded a total $66,000 in grants during their May meeting, including $56,000 to organizations and $10,000 to individuals.

A total of $30,000 was awarded to two Gwinnett-based organizations:

• $15,000 to Hope Clinic, in Gwinnett County, which specializes in internal medicine and chronic care management for low-income patients to help them avoid costly hospitalizations, for one year of care in the Chronic Care Management Program for diabetic patients who qualify as extremely low income per federal guidelines.

• $15,000 to Wishes 4 Me, a Lawrenceville charitable organization that provides housing for low-income disabled adults in all the Jackson EMC service area so they may live independently and be a part of the community, to help purchase a new septic tank for a community home that will enable them to accommodate more residents.
