A tradition was started in 2016 by the Grow Greene County Board of Directors to surprise deserving agencies in Greene County with a Give Back Award during the holiday season. This year on the heels of another successful year at Wild Rose Jefferson, the Grow Greene County Board gave out six Give Back Awards on November 13th.
Rather than surprise the organizations at their place of business as in years past, the Grow Greene County Board invited six agencies to the rotunda of the Greene County Court House on November 13th to receive an award. None of the agencies knew the amount of the award they would be receiving but suspected based on previous years that they may be a recipient of a Give Back Award.
The organizations invited to attend the presentation included ARC Food Pantry, New Opportunities, Inc. Greene County Family Development Center, Greene County Homeless Coalition, ACCESS, Congregate Meals, and Adopt a Family. Each received a check for $5,000 for a total of $30,000 awarded in the 2023 Give Back Awards.
In the spirit of giving, the Grow Greene County board of directors selected these organizations as they reach citizens in need across Greene County.Tags: ACCESS, Adopt-A-Family, ARC, Congregate Meals, Give Back Award, Greene County, Greene County Homeless Coalition, New Opportunities
