ATLANTA, GA – First Lady Mary Perdue issued the following statement regarding the OB-GYN Society’s $2000 donation to the Foster Care Support Foundation:

“This generous donation is a wonderful example of what the Our Children Campaign strives to achieve, to open people’s hearts to children in state custody. I would like to thank the OB-GYN Society for recognizing the need and stepping up to make a difference in the life of a child,” said Mrs. Perdue.

The First Lady accepted the donation on behalf of the Foster Care Support Foundation to go toward car seats for foster children. The OB-GYN Society was inspired to raise money for foster children by the First Lady’s Our Children Campaign.
