The Center for Domestic Preparedness Employee Association (CDPEA) recently made two separate donations of $500 each to the Longleaf Botanical Garden project and the Calhoun County Humane Society (CCHS).
The Botanical Garden is a project of the Anniston Museum of Natural History with support from the Anniston Rotary Club, and will offer a variety of gardens and trails for the public to enjoy. The CCHS donation will help with costs associated with facilities construction, care for the pets and utilities.
