Treutlen House at New Ebenezer received a $2,500 donation from Citizens of Georgia Power, a statewide service organization comprised of Georgia Power employees, retirees and their spouses.

The organization does volunteer work and raises money all year long for different charities. Locally, Plant McIntosh in Rincon and Plant Kraft in Port Wentworth combined to raise $5,000 this year, which the members chose to split between Treutlen House and Inner City Night Shelter in Savannah.

Treutlen House, a group home in Rincon for boys in the foster-care system, has the capacity for 12 boys and is currently housing eight. The donation from Georgia Power will be used to buy winter clothes and Christmas gifts for the boys and also provide funds for “needed repairs to the facility,” according to Treutlen House Director Bobbie Tootle.

“I am continuously amazed at the support of the community,” Tootle said. “It is support from organizations, like Georgia Power, that allows Treutlen House to continue excellent care to its residents and their families.”
