Who We Are
Community Involvement and Support
WE ARE... committed to helping all military personnel, veterans and their families. Spearheading Operation Patriot’s Call is proof of that commitment. Operation Patriot’s Call (OPC) was developed to organize the local community to take care of the family members of 48th Brigade, 1/121 Infantry Unit while the soldiers are deployed to Afghanistan. When the unit returns, we will help military members readjust to civilian life and help them navigate the VA system to speed the processing of benefits they are entitled to. Operation Patriot's Call has been recognized by Newman's Own and honored at a ceremony at the Pentagon. Operation Patriot's Call was honored to be the 2009 Athens Banner Herald Community Service Newsmaker of the Year.
WE ARE... committed to our community in many ways. By helping local fire and police departments, working with boy scouts and ROTC programs, donating food to the local homeless shelter, assisting with the Barrow County Family Connection Program, helping the Barrow County Holiday Connection Program, and supporting the battered women and children’s shelter, our commitment to service is well known. We are also members of the Barrow County Chamber of Commerce.
Our actions let the people know that we are part of our community and that they can rely on us!
