“We at Greater Hall County Fellowship of Christian Athletes have been very fortunate to receive the Clipper Petroleum Grant to help with our area East-West Classic All Star games. These games highlight senior athletes from our four counties that we serve through GHCFCA. Those four counties include Banks, Hall, Jackson and White.

With the help of the Clipper Petroleum Grant, we are able to reach over 350 athletes and coaches in a positive faith-based setting. This also enables us to bring our communities together as one to celebrate the accomplishments of our senior athletes.”
