Georgia United Foundation Announces 2022 School Crashers Makeover Program
DULUTH, GA—Georgia United Foundation, in partnership with Georgia United Credit Union, invites the local community to help make a difference in the lives of children by nominating a deserving school for a School Crashers makeover. Now through February 28, the local community is encouraged to nominate an accredited K-12 school in Georgia that would benefit from a facility improvement project. Project requests for structural, electrical or plumbing enhancements will not be considered. The schools with the most compelling story will be chosen as School Crashers recipients in March.
This marks the ninth year of the School Crashers program and is one of the foundation’s largest community service projects. The program brings together communities by supporting local school systems with the end goal of improving the learning environment
for students, faculty and staff. The program is funded through the Georgia United Foundation with supporting donations from generous sponsors and donor partners. Projects are completed by Georgia United Credit Union team members, community partners,
sponsors and volunteers.
Over the last eight years, School Crashers has provided 58 makeovers with improvements valued at almost $1.6 million. Project plans are designed for each school and improvements are typically completed during the summer and fall months. Prior recipients
have received a variety of improvements including landscaping, painting projects, technology, furniture, carpet, outdoor classrooms, a therapeutic garden, sensory room and new playground equipment. Photos of past School Crashers recipients are available
on the foundation website.
To help make a difference in your community, nominate a deserving school by February 28, at gucufoundation.org/schoolcrashers.
