Blue Jeans Net Donation to FACTOR

Employees at the Fayette County Public School System love blue jeans and a good cause. A total of $3,000 was collected for Fayette FACTOR (Fayette Alliance Coordinating Teamwork, Outreach and Resources) during jeans days at schools across the county.

In exchange for wearing jeans to work on a non-casual day, employees gave a donation to benefit Fayette FACTOR. The organization’s mission is to bring all areas of the community together to build a safe and healthy county. The school system’s donation will be used to help support the non-profit’s initiatives including Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, Prevent Child Abuse Fayette, Fayette Meth Task Force and ENCORE, a senior adult leadership program.

Donations made to Fayette FACTOR are tax deductible. Anyone wishing to help the organization can make donations payable to Fayette FACTOR, P.O. Box 142518, Fayetteville, GA 30214. Contact Executive Director Becky Smith for more information, 404-291-1602 (office cell).
