As nonprofits across the state of Georgia participate in the fourth annual Georgia Gives Day Thursday, Hall County’s sheriff is doing his part to give back to a charity that has special significance to him.
“I have spent my entire adult life as a member of law enforcement, and in that capacity, I have witnessed children who have been abandoned neglected and abused,” Hall County Sheriff Gerald Couch said. “Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes is a cause near and dear to my heart because of the work they do to provide these children with a nurturing environment.”
Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes is just one of a number of charities participating in Georgia Gives Day, a 24-hour statewide online giving event. Donors can log on to GAgives.org and select Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes—or any other participating nonprofit—in order to donate to that particular cause.
Sheriff Couch is encouraging the public to participate in Georgia Gives Day, which has raised more than $5.1 million for nonprofits since its inception in 2012.
“I am blessed to serve and live in this community,” Couch said. “This is an opportunity for all of us to pay some of those blessings forward and come together with other Georgians for a 24-hour day of giving.”
