Members of Clothes Less Traveled, a non-profit organization in Peachtree City, donated $2,000 to the Newnan Chapter of Continental Societies, Inc. on June 15.

Each month, CLT selects a volunteer who has shown excellent customer service and work performance to identify a charitable organization in the area to receive a monetary donation.

“The volunteer is given $2,000 of our grant money, and they can decide to give it to any qualifying non-profit that they choose,” said Kara Jackson, a communications specialist for CLT.

CLT is a thrift store that accepts donations from the community and sells the items at low prices.

 

 

“After we pay our own expenses with the revenue, we then grant funds to nonprofits,” said Gina Harris, volunteer coordinator at CLT.

In May, Cornelia Rolax was chosen by CLT for their monthly recognition, and she chose to give the money to NCCS.

“We were honored to be selected,” said Melvinor Kendrick, NCCS’s president.

According to Kendrick, NCCS provides programs in Coweta County Schools to work with and educate at-risk children on health, employment and literacy.

The grant money will be used to continue and expand those programs.
