Goodwill receives $5.7 million grant to help those in need

Goodwill receives $5.7 million grant to help those in need

ATLANTA -- Good news is coming for many Georgians who are struggling to find jobs.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis recently announced that Goodwill of North Georgia will receive $5,724,222 to help people with barriers to employment, namely ex-offenders and low-income non-custodial parents, obtain the skills they need to find work.

The funds will go toward an Enhanced Transitional Jobs Demonstration program, which offers temporary paid work experiences to more than 3,500 people nationwide. The program improves participants' employability, earnings and opportunities for advancement, not to mention their self-sufficiency and long-term success in the workforce.

"This grant provides needed support to individuals who face significant obstacles to employment," Solis said.

Gainesville police to give away booster seats

Gainesville police to give away booster seats

GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- The Gainesville Police Department will give away booster seats to local parents this weekend.

Come to police headquarters (701 Queen City Parkway) from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday to receive a free booster seat and learn about ways to keep children safe in the car.

State officials would like to remind parents of the new child restraint law. Beginning July 1, children must be properly restrained in a booster seat appropriate for their height and weight until they are eight years old.

A certified child passenger safety specialist will be on hand during the event to check car and booster seats for proper installation.

Booster seats will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis.
