American Woodmark Donates to CASA
Representatives from the American Woodmark Foundation recently presented Northeast Georgia Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) with a donation of $5,000 to help the CASA program recruit, screen, train and support volunteers to advocate for children in foster care in its eight-county county service area. The board of directors of American Woodmark Corporation established the American Woodmark Foundation in 1995, to maximize the value of contributions made by the company. Through the American Woodmark Foundation and partnerships with a variety of local and national organizations, American Woomark invests in communities to make them better places to raise families.

The SCDA is responsible for the recruitment of new businesses including industrial, manufacturing, distribution, corporate and regional headquarters and customer service centers. It also provides support and assistance with all other types of economic development projects.
The SCDA also works with existing businesses and industries to ensure their continued success. While recruitment of new industry is a significant function, aiding in existing industry expansion and retention is just as significant. About 80 percent of all new jobs in Georgia come as a result of existing industry expansion.
