In appreciation of a Georgetown native’s participation in Procter & Gamble’s Salute to Military Moms campaign, a $5,000 donation to The Village Group was made in the name of Dorothy Roberts by Procter & Gamble and ProCamps partnership.

Roberts participated in a photo shoot for use in marketing to promote ProCamps which involves professional athletes volunteering at athletic camps held at military installations throughout the United States and overseas.

“We selected The Village Group because I wanted to give back to the community where I grew up,” Roberts said at the check presentation on March 8. “The Village Group works to promote and achieve youth development, literacy enrichment, recreation enhancements and community improvements so I wanted to help them live their mission.”

Roberts added, “ProCamps helps children dream big and in addition to teaching them football skills, also instills teamwork and the importance of education. I believe The Village Group does similar things and that is why we wanted to help today’s youth become tomorrow’s successful leaders.”

Roberts is a supervisor at the trainee/student processing work center/directorate of human resources at Fort Jackson in Columbia. She is the daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Robert Ford, Jr of Plantersville.
