LAWRENCEVILLE - The Gwinnett Braves have announced the recipient of the club's $1,000 grant for the month of June. <br />
Lindsay's Legacy Mentoring, Inc. has been awarded June's "Summer Safety" themed grant, aimed at assisting organizations that fund or run safety programs for children.<br />
Lindsay's Legacy Mentoring began serving students in Jackson County schools in 2005 under the direction of Jackson County Family Connection. In March of 2013, LLM branched out and became a youth-serving non-profit organization dedicated to friendship-based mentoring throughout Jackson County.<br />
The goal of LLM is to guide children and youth toward personal and academic success through mentoring and friendship. The grant money awarded by the G-Braves will be used for mentor training, informational brochures and activity supplies in hopes to continue the ongoing growth of the program.<br />
