2 Bibb County schools receive $2,500 donation

Bruce Elementary and Appling Middle School were nominated to receive the award.

MACON, Georgia(41NBC/WMGT) — Two Bibb County Schools were awarded $2,500 from the Witherite Law Group, a law group based in Atlanta.

Bruce Elementary and Appling Middle School were nominated to receive the award. Both schools say the money will go to buying supplies for students and help purchase other items the students may need.

The law group says it wants to extend more resources to schools in Macon.

“I hope it’s two fold,” owner Amy Witherite said. “I hope we’re giving this $2,500 to the school as a first step to building a long term relationship to support these young kids.”

Both schools say they’re grateful for the donation.
