Coweta-Fayette Rotary donates to nonprofit

The Rotary Club of Coweta-Fayette recently presented a large donation to new nonprofit Family Patterns Matter.

On July 29, the Rotary Club gave the nonprofit’s founder, Linda Kirkpatrick, a $3,000 check for the organization. The donation was given to the Rotary Club by Dr. Sean Carr with Carr Eye Care, and was gifted to help jump-start the new organization. Kirkpatrick was completely surprised by the donation, thinking she was only invited to the Rotary Club’s weekly meeting as a guest speaker.

Family Patterns Matter is an organization benefiting teens and pre-teens with the motto, “youth empowering youth.” The nonprofit seeks to help teens overcome situations of bullying, violent behavior and feelings of lack of self worth, and it hopes to help them find responsibility through youth groups and youth advisory boards.

“This is an amazing organization that is going to be here for a while helping kids,” said Ginger Queener, the Rotary Club’s current president.
