New $30,000 Grant Recipient
Helping Hands of Georgetown was recently awarded a $30,000 grant from Power:Ed, a philanthropy of the SC Student Loan Corporation.
“Helping Hands of Georgetown is making a significant impact in the lives of area youth and families, reporting a 100% graduation rate where 90% of students went on to a two- or four-year college/university and the remaining 10% enlisted in the military or entered the workforce,” said Power:Ed Executive Director Claire Gibbons. “We are so excited to help Helping Hands reach more underserved students and transform their future outcomes.”
