Georgia Natural Gas® Announces Neighbor In Need As Trueblue Community Awards Winner!

We are proud to announce Neighbor in Need was selected as the 2019 Georgia Natural Gas® (GNG) TrueBlue Community Awards top grant recipient. Selected by a team of independent judges, comprised of dedicated community leaders, Neighbor in Need’s mission is to help low-income seniors living in East Lake, Kirkwood, and Edgewood communities make emergency home repairs. This enables them to remain safely in their homes and comfortably age in their own place.

Another grant recipient was Live Thrive Atlanta — the first and only recycling drop-off facility that accepts hard to recycle materials and hazardous household waste. An additional recipient was the Center for the Visually Impaired, Georgia’s largest service provider for the blind and visually impaired — servicing all ages.

We congratulate all of the winners and applicants. All winners will receive grants and recognition.
