Special Olympics Georgia Receives Grant from The Home Depot Foundation
Date:2/18/2010

ATLANTA, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Through its fourth annual Building Community Day program, The Home Depot® Foundation has awarded $20,000 to Special Olympics Georgia (SOGA). The donation will be used to grow the State Competitions which also includes the Healthy Athletes free health screenings at all events.

"We are excited and honored to receive this support of both collaboration and funding from The Home Depot Foundation," said SOGA Chief Executive Officer Georgia Milton-Sheats. "This incredible and positive recognition and support will assist us as we expand and enhance our programs for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the Atlanta community and statewide."  

Through its Building Community Day program, sponsored in partnership with the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, The Home Depot Foundation connects with some of Atlanta's most effective nonprofit organizations, which are focused on building communities through innovative programs and collaborative partnerships that fall outside of the Foundation's usual areas of giving. Twenty nonprofits participated in roundtable discussions and workshops focused on the theme of 'Social Innovation: Inspirational Ideas and Practices for Maximum Impact.' Each organization received a $20,000 grant at the end of day to support their work on a broad range of issues facing the Atlanta community.  

"We are delighted to support and celebrate nonprofits in our hometown that have a long-standing commitment to making Atlanta a healthier and more sustainable city where families can thrive," said Kelly Caffarelli
