Georgians Helping Georgians

Friend, 

The American people are better than anyone at facing big challenges. During this COVID-19 crisis, people across our country and state are stepping up to help each other.

Here are a few encouraging stories I wanted to share with you: 

  • Chick fil-A is donating over $10 million-worth of food for first responders, healthcare workers, school systems, and others who need it most. Over 5,000 meals have already been delivered right here in Georgia.
  • Boys and Girls Clubs across our state are working hard every day to make sure no child goes without a meal. One club in Southeast Georgia is distributing 800 meals a day.  
  • Pretoria Fields Brewery in hard-hit Albany has switched their production to makehand santizer for local first responders. 
  • The Kia Motors manufacturing plant in West Point announced they would use part of their facility to make face shields. These shields will be distributed to medical facilities across our state.
  • Flowery Branch High School has been using the school's 3D printer to make face shields for the Northeast Georgia Health System. They are making roughly 60 face shields per day.

This is a challenging time for our country. Thanks to the selfless generosity of our friends and neighbors, we will get through it together.
