Hands on Thomas County has received a $10,000 grant for the second year in a row.

The organization helps out in the community, setting up volunteers with projects that will benefit Thomas County.

Jo Ann Bell, the Executive Director at Hands on Thomas County, said, "A project impact, a youth group where kids take a week and get out in the community, working for the food bank, the Humane Society, senior citizens work with children. It will help us on our volunteering projects."

Bell hopes the grant will allow the organization to increase volunteer reach, getting more busy hands out in the community helping out.
