A charity serving Gwinnett County was among three organizations that recently received a Delta Community Philanthropic Fund award.
Everybody Wins! Atlanta, Inc. received a $5,000 grant to fund its Power Lunch Literacy Program. The Power Lunch Program provides critical literacy training to more than 670 students in low-income schools in Gwinnett, Fulton, Dekalb and Cobb counties.
“Independent studies have shown our Power Lunch Program improves students’ reading comprehension, motivation and achievement,” said Everybody Wins! Atlanta’s Executive Director Tiffany Tolbert. “Perhaps just as important, this program improves students’ overall academic performance, classroom behavior, self-confidence and social skills. We are excited to have this grant to provide additional materials to at-risk students.”
In addition to the grant awarded to Everybody Wins! Atlanta, Delta Community also presented a $5,000 grant to Our House, Inc. to provide financial literacy training to homeless families, and a $6,000 grant to Mercy Housing Southeast.
