Mohawk Group Names 2020 Winners of School Crashers Program
Calhoun, GA, August 14, 2020-Each year Mohawk Group partners with Georgia United Credit Union Foundation to “crash” deserving schools all over the state. Faculty and administration across Georgia apply for facility makeovers based of specific needs that would enhance their respective curriculum and campus. One winner receives a school makeover grant funded by the foundation and runner-up schools receive grants for specific projects.
Earlier in the summer, donations of carpet tile and adhesive were dispatched on the Mohawk fleet for School Crashers to refresh media centers at Avondale Elementary School in Avondale Estates and Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta. Additionally, Mohawk Group helped make a new sensory room a reality at New Hope Middle School, which sits just down the street from some of its manufacturing facilities in Dalton as the closest school crash to date.
The school used the $20,000 award to establish an inspiring and engaging environment specifically set aside for a population of nearly 30 students that have diverse academic needs that range from autism, intellectual disorders, physical impairments, visual impairments and oppositional defiant disorders.
Four additional public schools across metropolitan Atlanta and middle Georgia were the deserving recipients of School Crashers program grants with the addition and makeover of playgrounds and outdoor classrooms.
