Georgia Natural Gas® (GNG) proudly honored its 10th and final TrueBlue Community Award winners this past fall. For the past 10 years, the program has provided grants and recognition to deserving non-profits throughout the Georgia community. We would especially like to thank and recognize this past year’s applicants. All these organizations were able to pivot and actively respond to the needs of Georgia’s most vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 crisis.
“Over the years, non-profit organizations from all over Georgia have applied for the competitive awards and grants. We’ve been fortunate to make site visits to some of the recipients in places like Augusta and Savannah and witness their innovation and dedication first-hand,” says Maurice Baker,GNG Community Relations Manager. “We are especially grateful for the community support and positive feedback from our customers and community leaders. Please join us in congratulating this final group of winners.
Georgia Natural Gas proudly celebrates the King Holiday and Black History Month as the presenting sponsor of Sit-In, a new animated production for young audiences produced by the Alliance Theatre. Written by Atlanta’s bestselling author, playwright, and Civil Rights Activist, Pearl Cleage, this original animated short celebrates the power of youth to change history. We meet three friends as they learn about the sit-ins of the Civil Rights era and powerfully apply those lessons to issues they — and we all — face today. The play invites students, parents, teachers, and families to experience the Civil Rights Movement as a living, breathing energy with practical lessons, ethical challenges, and moral choices that remain relevant.
In addition to sponsoring the short itself, GNG is excited to announce its sponsorship of a learning curriculum developed around the production as well. Over 200 students at Centennial Academy, GNG’s partner school of fifteen years, will be participating in this exciting new endeavor. For more information visit alliancetheatre.org*.
