Our ability to raise over $1 million when we originally budgeted to raise $450,000 is incredible. Georgia Power was key in this initiative. This feat built our organizational self-esteem and it showed that our partners really believe in us.
CEO, Kari Love
Georgia Power has always been supportive financially, as well as physically during special events and activities. This year, we’ve had to pivot to make sure all services are provided, and they’ve helped to make that happen.
Vice President, Victoria Hyunh
We have been elated to have our friends at Georgia Power participate in a special World AIDS Day event and we’ve been able to share a number of resources from Georgia Power with people who may have been struggling financially.
Executive Director, Jeff Graham
One of the first things they wanted to know was what and why is it important to us. I found that to be quite significant because it helps us learn from each other. Georgia Power listens to us. They have been an investor and a believer that we are good stewards of their investment. I can't begin to tell you how much that means to us.
Executive Director, Gilda Pedraza
Georgia Power has participated in us getting there. They have always been a key player in our fundraising efforts. I’ll never forget when Georgia Power President Chris Womack chaired our ‘A Meal to Remember’ event approximately three years ago. The level of sincere concern and commitment shown by him, Rita Breen with the Georgia Power Foundation and Charmaine Ward-Millner with Corporate Relations were phenomenal. Georgia Power is a great partner.
CEO, Charlene Crusoe-Ingram
With COVID-19, we actually had to bootstrap it. Georgia Power supported this initiative, and without their support, it would not have been a success.
President & CEO, Nancy Flake Jonson
