(New York, N.Y.) - QBE has awarded $5,000 grants to two
Atlanta-area organizations to support programs focused on
education, skill development and basic needs.
According to QBE President and Chief Executive Officer John
Rumpler, the grants are given to further the QBE Foundation's
mission of supporting vocational opportunities and helping people
live more independently, successfully and productively. "Without
the assistance of these fantastic charities, people may not be able
to make strides toward helping themselves," he said. "We are
delighted our foundation grants will make a positive impact."
The organizations and the services the grants will support are:
- Camp Dream Foundation - To help subsidize a program that
teaches new skills focusing on leadership and teamwork to special
needs children and young adults.
- The Extension - To help furnish rehabilitation programs for
homeless and chemically dependent people so they can become
productive members of society.
