For every UGA Bulldog field goal this season, Walton EMC Natural Gas will donate $500 toward these three local charities. Donations will be distributed based on each charity's percentage of votes.

For 20 years Camp Twin Lakes (CTL) has provided life-changing camp experiences to Georgia's children with serious illness, disabilities and other life challenges. They serve more than 9,100 campers through week-long summer camps and weekend retreats at three medically-supportive and fully- accessible campsites, day camps and hospital-based Camp-To-Go programs. CTL collaborates with more than 60 different nonprofit organizations to create customized programs that teach campers to overcome obstacles and grow in their confidence and capabilities.

Individuals and families seeking assistance can rely on The Salvation Army (TSA) to fairly and compassionately help in their time of need. TSA's facilities are strategically positioned in lower income areas throughout the metro Atlanta area, allowing them to make the greatest impact on the largest number of people in need. In Atlanta and the surrounding 13 counties, TSA has seven Financial Emergency Service Centers; five shelter, housing and recovery programs for individuals, families, veterans, and senior citizens; three Boys and Girls Clubs; and eight Corps Community and Worship Centers.

Every day lifesaving work happens at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. From fractures and appendectomies to pediatric cancer treatments and organ transplants, Children's provides high-quality care to children from each of Georgia's 159 counties. As the nation's largest pediatric clinical care provider, they manage more than 847,000 patient visits annually. Simply put, their goal is to make kids better today and healthier tomorrow.
