We used the grant money to purchase outside kennels for Clarke County Animal Shelter.
The kennels are used every day to put dogs in so that the inside kennels can be cleaned.
Prior to our purchase the dogs were breaking out of the old kennels and were getting injured.
K9 Unit Project ROCKY is an ongoing, ever evolving project that was created to build and maintain a state of the art K9 unit. This unit currently employs three K9 Officers and each has a dual purpose K9. The dual purpose K9’s are able to detect narcotics and apprehend.
Equipment can be an enhancement tool used to make this unit more efficient and transparent. All Thomasville Officers have a body worn camera and now our K9’s do as well. The MOHOC camera is a helmet mounted system that can be remotely viewed from a mobile device. K9’s are able to search a facility or area while keeping the handlers safe and at a distance.
This was an absolute blessing to me and others at our little vegetable farm. Some of the monies were utilize to procure educational classes that will be available to us for a lifetime. Organic farming is challenging to say the least and this proven successful methodology will be completely beneficial to not only us but others that will be taught.
Other monies were utilized to procure irrigation equipment to be used in and environmentally friendly application. Well conserving water and controlling any erosion possibilities.
We cannot thank ALA-TOM enough for this huge shot in the arm.
HIPPY and PAT are home visiting programs that work directly with parents to help them become their child’s “first teacher”. One of the requirements of both programs is to hold monthly group meetings/connections to offer additional assistance in meeting the needs of the parents and children. During this time the children are worked with on a variety of skills. STEAM activities will allow us to reinforce skills already being taught in the homes through HIPPY and PAT, thus better preparing our children for their future academic success. Our focus is that childen learn through play naturally. Having these activities will allows us to be proactive in their learning by providing the basics of what they will need in their future.
