This donation is a part of $370,000 Amicalola EMC is donating throughout the region from capital credit refunds that have been unclaimed. According to a 2005 change in Georgia’s unclaimed property law, Amicalola EMC can distribute these unclaimed refunds for three purposes: Education, Economic Development, and 501(c)3 charities.
