Atlanta area Holiday Party a huge success!

Despite an unexpected snowstorm in the Atlanta area, our 13th annual Children’s Holiday Party on December 10, 2017 went off without a hitch. With the help of our community partners at Stars and Strikes, almost 200 children and their accompanying adults were treated to lunch, bowling, bumper cars, laser tag, arcade games, face painters, balloon twisters, party games, family photos, and much more. Every child left with a stuffed holiday stocking and a huge smile.The wonderful folks at Stars and Strikes are always so kind to us, and this year the owners donated $1000 in Target gift cards for our kids. An amazing time was had by all! – Jody Howard, Director of Education and Support Services, NTF-Georgia

The Jackson EMC Foundation, the charitable arm of Jackson EMC, asks its customers to round up their power bill to the nearest dollar to be used for charitable donations. Overseen by the foundation’s board, these funds are then awarded as grants to address charitable needs and provide financial assistance in the ten counties where Jackson EMC provides electric service.
