(New York, N.Y.) - QBE has awarded $5,000 grants to two Atlanta-area organizations to support programs focused on education, skill development and basic needs.

According to QBE President and Chief Executive Officer John Rumpler, the grants are given to further the QBE Foundation's mission of supporting vocational opportunities and helping people live more independently, successfully and productively. "Without the assistance of these fantastic charities, people may not be able to make strides toward helping themselves," he said. "We are delighted our foundation grants will make a positive impact."

The organizations and the services the grants will support are:

  • Camp Dream Foundation - To help subsidize a program that teaches new skills focusing on leadership and teamwork to special needs children and young adults.
  • The Extension - To help furnish rehabilitation programs for homeless and chemically dependent people so they can become productive members of society.
