This slipped by me, but one of Oak Grove Market's owners was recently named a Community Hero by DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis.
Jeremy Turner received the award for creating Contribute2America, his service organization dedicated to helping homeless and near homeless people. The organization, which has a thrift store at 3342 Clairmont Rd., connects those in need with services food, first aid and other types of support.
So, that's two people in the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff community who have received awards for service from Ellis. Henderson Middle School eighth-grader Spencer Wilson was the other. Here's a link to his story:
Congratulations, Jeremy and Spencer (again).
