Putting Our Best Foot Forward
Several local charities and schools in our area are in need of shoe donations –and that’s where South Georgia Banking Company (SGBC) is stepping in.
Throughout the month of October, SGBC will accept shoe donations at our branches located in Tift, Colquitt, Turner and Crisp counties. New or gently used shoes are preferred and can be dropped off at collection stations located in each branch’s lobby. All donations benefit charities and schools within each county. Recipients of donations in the Cordele area are Crisp County DFACS and Crisp County elementary schools.
The Division of Family and Children Services, also known as DFACS, provides a variety of services and programs to help families take a step in the right direction including welfare and employment support, child protection services and foster care. Their reach is widespread; therefore, shoe donations for men, women and children are all greatly appreciated.
“The idea to host this shoe drive stemmed from our 2010-2011 marketing campaign ‘Partners in the Walk of Life,’” said Brinson Brock, City President of SGBC in Ashburn. "Banking relationships aren't just about deposits and withdrawals. We're concerned about the whole person not just the financial side."
