CLEVELAND, Ga. – The White County Community Resources Association (WCCRA), the originator and operator of the Community Thrift Store, has announced its intent to award grants to certain 501c3 businesses that help area residents and meet the WCCRA’s mission statement which is: To serve the members of our community who find themselves in need of essential goods and basic human and life enhancing services.
James Crowe, vice president of the WCCRA Board of Directors said the organization awards these grants on a quarterly basis and has already awarded more than $1 million in grant money to groups like the Boy Scouts, Special Olympics and the White County Free Health Clinic out of funds generated by the Thrift Store.

The Board of Directors of the WCCRA will review the applications. The WCCRA Board has final authority on all grants. Grant applications may be obtained at the Community Thrift Store between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
