Athens, GA: Today, the Walton County Bar Association delivered a check to the American Red Cross in the amount of $1,000, which was earmarked for Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief. Recently elected President Eric C. Crawford and Treasurer Jared Campbell had the opportunity to present American Red Cross Athens Executive Director Laura E. Allen with the check at the American Red Cross office in Athens, Georgia.

At the Walton County Bar Association’s annual meeting in Monroe on September 1, 2017, Loganville Attorney Mike Jones made a motion to donate $1,000 in WCBA funds to the Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief. Social Circle Attorney Becky Dally seconded the motion, which carried unanimously through a voice vote. The donation was funded by membership dues collected from members of the bar association.
