Cobb-based Delta Community Credit Union recently awarded $5,000 to two nonprofit organizations that serve metro Atlanta children and families.

Through its established Philanthropic Fund, the credit union awarded a $2,500 grant to Quality Care for Children for its Emergency Child Care program, which connects families with safe, dependable childcare during crises.

The Piedmont Park Conservancy was awarded a separate $2,500 grant to fund its Field Trips program. In addition to giving young students a chance to experience nature right in the heart of Atlanta, the program also offers classes focused on science, technology, engineering and math.
