The George R. Johnson Family Foundation has been partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland for over 10 years in support of the organization’s mission to build and repair homes in Bradley County. The George R. Johnson Family Foundation presented a check for $60,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland in September as part of a grant.
The George R. Johnson Family Foundation was established in 2000 by George Johnson, an entrepreneur who owned and operated Hardee’s restaurants in East Tennessee and Northwest Georgia. The mission of the Johnson Family Foundation is to improve the quality of life in the communities it serves by supporting programs which improve the education, health or the general welfare of the citizens in those communities. Mr. Johnson’s children, Mark Johnson and Julia Scoggins, continue to operate the Hardee’s restaurants and Janice Johnson Wilson is the Executive Director of the Foundation. “The Johnson Family Foundation supports Habitat because the families who are eligible for a Habitat home work to help build the homes and learn how to manage a home,” said Janice Johnson Wilson, Executive Director.
