City Of Mt Zion Receives 2024 AARP Community Challenge grant

We are thrilled to share that we are one of 343 grantees selected to receive a 2024 AARP Community Challenge grant from @AARPLivableCommunities and AARP@AARPGeorgia! We are incredibly proud that AARP selected us for this investment to make City of Mount Zion more livable for residents of all ages. Through this grant we will construct two blessing boxes, which will offer residents access to free, non-perishable foods, basic toiletries and pet food. The boxes will be located near Mount Zion’s senior center and the local library. (Flagship Grant).
