Mentors Project Honors Two Non-Profit Groups at Christmas Party
A non-profit group that matches kids with positive adult role models honored two Middle Georgia organizations for their service to the community on Sunday.
During its annual Christmas party, the Mentors Project recognized ”The Middle Georgia Community Food Bank" and "Macon Rescue Mission" as co - humanitarians of the year. This is the first time two non - profit groups have been recognized at the same time for their service.
"They provide food for events,” executive director, June O’Neal said. “They provide muscle. They provide trucks. They provide furniture when a child gets burned out. Between those two organizations we just can't say thank you enough to them.
Mentors Project workers said they wanted to show their appreciation for all the hard work both groups have put forth for the kids in their program.
"It's not all about the Mentors Project,” O’Neal said. “ It's all about the good of the community and the children and when two other non-profits rise to the top to always help us, we are just blessed by their presence in Macon and Middle Georgia,"
The Mentors Project is planning to feed the homeless at First Presbyterian Church in Macon on December 11.
