Coastal Georgia COVID-19 Community Emergency Needs Fund
The Communities of Coastal Georgia announced that it has awarded $40,000 in grants to agencies in Camden County providing basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, water, prescriptions/healthcare, and medical care to those who have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The following funding awards represent Phase One and Two of a multi-phase response to quickly deploy resources into our Coastal communities:
Camden Connection – $20,000 (Challenge) - Camden Connection established a community relief fund to alleviate the burden of COVID-19 on Camden families. These funds are intended to challenge others to support this effort.

Methodist Home for Boys - $5,000 – Residential Care.
Camden Community Crisis Center (Camden House) - $10,000 - Support services to domestic violence victims impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

As our community begins reopening, we are seeing so clearly that this pandemic is having a deep and wide impact on the local economy,” says Paul White, President and CEO of The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation. “We encourage all who are able to consider making a gift to the Emergency Needs Fund at www.coastalgeorgiafoundation.org.”
