Community Service Update
Thank you again, library staffers, for helping us help Georgia families.
We collected a total of 139 pounds of food for the Food
Bank of Northeast Georgia. We also raised $715
to buy presents for a family of five (Rita, Brendishai, Cirnovonte,
Zechariah, and Aziyah) living at the Athens
Area Homeless Shelter and
donate funds to shelter operations. You gave $515, and LSA provided
$200 in matching funds. Santa would be proud.
