A Strong Foundation for a Strong Community

In Augusta, Georgia, on April 6, 2021, IBM's Senior State Executive in Georgia, Kitty Chaney Reed (far left below), helped the Community Foundation for The Central Savannah River Area break ground on the "HUB for Community Innovation," a campus to house community services involving education, family, food, housing, health care and career readiness. IBM, Augusta National Golf Club, AT&T, and Bank of America  are donating $2.5 million each for the campus' construction over the next year. The HUB includes a new Boys & Girls Clubs support center and headquarters, providing youth mentoring, as well as college and workforce readiness services. These resources are designed to help revitalize Augusta's historic Harrisburg and Laney Walker neighborhoods. The project reflects IBM's commitment to education, along with its support for  public, private and not-for-profit partnerships that make vulnerable communities more self sufficient and successful.
