August 2020
We are so glad you are here.

As we gain momentum towards fall, it can seem the year has somehow disappeared. But, we can assure you, as a valued donor, volunteer, or member of our community, the good work you make happen through the Henry County Community Foundation is thriving.
We hope you enjoy this issue as we celebrate the impact made through the Choose Henry Flex Fund during quarantine. We would also draw your attention to the information in blue. Making plans for the unexpected has never been highlighted quite like 2020 and we have free resources available to you.

Thank you for your support of Henry County and please let us know if we can help you make your impact in our community.

Celebrating Community Together By: Jennifer Fox
In celebration of the 35 years of community impact.
The work you accomplish through the Foundation is vast and crosses all sectors of our community. One such project, which is available to everyone, no matter their age, is the trails system.

Providing opportunities for both physical and mental health, the trails have seen significant increases in use during the pandemic. The Henry County Community Foundation is proud to support our local trails through Healthy Communities of Henry County and the Cardinal Greenway.

A recent grant from the Choose Henry Flex Fund is providing safety on the trails.
You can help make mental health and physical health opportunities available in our county with a gift to the Choose Henry Flex Fund HERE.
