On behalf of everyone at Rockdale County Department of Family and Children Services, we would like to express our sincere gratitude for your generous donations and sponsorship with Rockdale County families and children. It was heartwarming knowing that a child woke up on Christmas morning with a smile, while opening their gifts that you so generously gave.

The staff at Georgia United are a living embodiment of giving back to the community and for that, the Y is truly grateful. Your gift of dollars and time has a big impact for many in our community's mind, body, and spirit.

Thank you so much for this grant. It will really go a long way to help us provide meals to the children in our community.

We rely on support from community partners like Georgia United Credit Union. With their funding, we will serve so many families during these trying times. Filling basic needs, like diapers, for families makes such a difference. Collaborations and partners are what help make our communities stronger.
- Jan Ruth M., Director of Giving, Helping Mamas
We are beyond excited for our students at New Hope Middle School to experience the new sensory room provided to us through the Georgia United Credit Union School Crashers grant. This unique classroom environment will enable a special population of our students to have their sensory needs met in various ways allowing for optimal success in the academic classrooms and fostering positive relationships with their peers. We are on the countdown to the first day of school and can not wait to let our students see our new sensory room!
- Principal Belinda Sloan, New Hope Middle School
Thanks to my Georgia United scholarship, I’m not only gaining academic knowledge from my classes at Mercer, I’m gaining insight into who I am and who I’ll be. My scholarship funds enabled me to complete a summer leadership development training in Maine which were the most rewarding and life-changing eight days of my life. My Georgia United scholarship is helping me learn exactly how I will change the world. I am eternally grateful for the confidence that the board showed in me last Spring.
