Sandy Springs Education Force’s After-School All-Stars program received a grant from the Delta Community Credit Union’s Philanthropic Fund.

After-School All-Stars, under the guidance of program partner Georgia State University Research Foundation, has six components: academic remediation and enrichment, sports and recreation, career development, technology, cultural enrichment and tutoring.

It runs five days a week from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Sandy Springs Charter Middle School. The initiative serves 175 students, 97 percent of whom are economically disadvantaged.

The Delta Community Credit Union Philanthropic Fund offers an annual grant-making program which provides financial support to nonprofit organizations whose purpose is to help families manage their household finances and improve the physical and financial well-being of young people.

The presentation was made at the Delta Community Credit Union’s Sandy Springs branch.

The Sandy Springs Education Force is the city’s leading educational organization dedicated to inspiring and supporting all Sandy Springs public school students to graduate and pursue productive lives beyond high school by providing educational and enrichment programs through community collaboratives.
