Donations such as this are made possible to qualifying organizations using funds from unclaimed capital credits. “FCA plays a significant role in helping to develop coaches and student-athletes on the playing field and off, fostering their educational, leadership and community engagement skills, all of which align with OREMC’s founding cooperative principals,” explained OREMC Member Service Representative Dewayne Johns during the presentation.

“We are grateful for the ongoing support of FCA by Okefenoke REMC,” noted Crews. “Specifically, this donation will help us send coaches and athletes to FCA sports camps and the leadership camps on St. Simons Island. These camps offer comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training that produces spiritual transformation through perspiration and inspiration.”

Okefenokee Area FCA serves coaches and student-athletes from Brantley, Pierce and Ware counties at the middle school, high school, college, recreation and travel ball levels. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging coaches and athletes to make a difference for Christ.
