The Legacy Community Newsletter for The Legacy of Pearls Foundation Issue 2 - 2017

Greetings from the President The Legacy of Pearls Foundation, Inc. (LOPF) has been hard at work and is happy to announce that we are diligently working to meet our goal for the year. I would like to take this time to thank our corporate sponsors who helped to make all of this possible. GA Power Foundation, Subaru of Kennesaw, Subaru of Atlanta, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Target who gave us generous donations. We are excited to be able to offer students of Douglasville, Georgia $10,000 in scholarships to pursue their degrees in higher education. It is our hope that through continued community sponsorships and activities we are able to grow these numbers every year.

LOPF will continue to be in the community! We will continue to strive to make an impact and a difference in the lives of the families of Douglas County. We have several ways that you can make an impact if you also want to be a part of our efforts. Visit the Foundation’s website and join us as a Pearl Patron, Emerald Donor, Silver Donor, Gold Donor or Platinum Donor. It takes a village and LOPF will continue to work and serve to improve the lives of those we touch whether it be through bookbags, scholarships or partner engagement. We look forward to working with you in the future! Roxanne Dye Grimes President

The Legacy Giving of your Time and Talents Time is Precious. Giving of your time and talents is just as important as making monetary donations. Our volunteers are filled with resourceful information that helps everyone succeed. As a non-profit, we have a variety of opportunities to participate in group activities that in turn reward the Foundation with a donation. Volunteers are the most important resource a community organization can have. The ability of people to work willingly together for the betterment of their community is a valuable resource. We appreciate our volunteers!

We always need volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering with LOPF, please log on to our website and sign-up for our mailing list. This is where we will share information about volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer opportunities include activities like races, community events, programs, and more. Get connected today.
