New Empowerment Center opening in Garden City
GARDEN CITY, Ga. (WTOC) - A Georgia lawmaker is teaming up with a local health system to help fight poverty in the Greater Savannah area.
On Monday, July 15, State Representative Carl Gilliard will announce the opening of the Empowerment Center in Garden City. The center is a partnership between Representative Gilliard’s Feed the Hungry Program and St. Joseph’s/Candler. Together, these two organizations will be responsible for bringing in local and state organizations to provide resources to those living in poverty.
“So this is going to give people the chance to get careers, give people a second chance with the companies, to get them into those jobs and careers,” said Rep. Carl Gilliard, D, District 162.
