Jackson Electric Membership Corp. has donated $25,000 to Interactive Neighborhood for Kids’ capital campaign, helping the Gainesville nonprofit move closer to its $2 million goal to build a state-of-the-art facility.

INK launched a capital campaign in April to raise the funds to build a new facility on a site along Friendship Road in Flowery Branch.

“The Flowery Branch location ... will enable us to reach nearly 420,000 school-aged children per year,” INK Executive Director Sheri Hooper said.

The Jackson EMC donation comes from margin refunds that have been unclaimed by the electric cooperative’s members.
