MARIETTA, Ga.– Credit Union of Georgia is honored to announce the recognition of their Business Development Officer, Kathy Winiarczyk as the winner of the Communities In Schools Georgia in Marietta/Cobb County (CIS) Jail & Bail Fundraiser for raising the most donations! Winiarczyk raised $2,539.23 for the cause. The fundraiser as a whole raised a total of $18,064.18 for at-risk youth in Marietta and Cobb County. She not only participated on behalf of the Credit Union of Georgia, but the Credit Union also donated to the fundraiser.
Executive Director of CIS, Natalie Rutledge shared, “We are so thankful for Kathy’s support and efforts to help make our first CIS Jail & Bail: Guilty for Caring for Kids a huge success! Kathy is a tireless servant leader and is always ready to give her time, talents and resources to support the Cobb County community. With her sincere generosity and big smile, not job is too little or challenge too big. We are thankful for Kathy and the Credit Union of Georgia’s partnership with Communities In Schools and together we are #Allinforkids!”
CIS is the nation’s leading dropout prevention and intervention organization. Improving graduation rates and addressing the academic and nonacademic challenges is important for at-risk youth—8 of 10 high school dropouts end up in the criminal justice system and last year, 6 of 10 found guilty in Cobb County Superior Court were high school dropouts.
With the Credit Union of Georgia being founded by educators in Marietta and Cobb County the Credit Union has a strong passion for giving back to the schools and programs that support. When asked what she loves most about serving the community through the Credit Union, Winiarczyk stated, “I am proud to be part of an organization that prioritizes the community. My favorite part is getting to be hands-on in the community, whether that is actively fundraising or volunteering. Getting out there and meeting those we help is the best!”
Credit Union of Georgia proudly supports CIS and the community of Marietta and Cobb County. To learn more about the Credit Union of Georgia and their fundraising efforts for local charities visit, www.CUofGA.org.
