An organization whose mission is to keep a river clean is presented with an award for their hard work and dedication. The Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama presented several grants to worthy organizations, one of those being The Coosa Riverkeeper. The organization is a proud member of Waterkeeper Alliance, an international network of more than 250 organizations working to protect local waterways. Coosa Riverkeeper Executive Director Justinn Overton says this has been a long process. Community Foundation Director of Donor Grants and Standards for Excellence, Heather Lamey says she and her co-workers are excited to see how each organization grows in the future.
