Special Kids Benefit From I-85 Contractor's Hard Work

May 19, 2017

When Atlanta's fire-damaged I-85 bridge came in well ahead of the proposed completion date, Georgia DOT kept their promise and awarded contractor C.W. Matthews of Marietta a $3.1 million bonus.

Last week, C.W. Matthews President Dan Garcia announced that $10,000 of that bonus money will go to Camp Hooray, an innovative 70-acre facility run by non-profit Extra Special People that gives children with special needs a chance to enjoy summer camp fun and activities in a safe and accessible environment. The overnight camp lets kids in wheelchairs sleep on the top bunk and gives individuals with autism a safe place to intentionally wander.

Well done.
