Coffee County was recently awarded the Acts of Caring Award. It’s given for improving the quality of life for seniors.
Coffee County Commission Chairman Robert Stephens accepted the award in Washington D.C.
Coffee was one of just two-dozen counties nationwide to receive such recognition. That’s out of more than 3,000 counties. Stephens says it's due to the generosity of its residents.
The next closest area to receive the award was Broward County in South Florida.
