Such a cool project from our friends Hart Chamber and Hartwell Main Street!

Thank you so much to each of you who were able to support our t-shirt fundraiser! Because of your overwhelming support, we sold out of shirts in THREE HOURS! We sold 145 shirts and raised $2350 that went back to 35 different businesses/organizations in Hart County! Hart Chamber and Hartwell Main Street began delivering the donations today.

We have heard from many people that they would like to order a shirt and we are working through that now so stay tuned.

I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Hart County Chamber of Commerce, the Hartwell Downtown Development Authority, and the Hartwell Main Street Program, as well as the City of Hartwell and Hart County. Our organizations would not be successful without your support.

Hunker down Bulldogs!

To all the members of The Bulldog Nation,

Thank you so much for your continued support during this time. We know that the current events have left us all with a feeling of great uncertainty, but we will continue to attack each day with a commitment to our community.

Football operations have been suspended. However, we have a greater mission that extends beyond sport alone. We find ourselves with an opportunity to further our commitment to each other. To direct our passion and energy towards the betterment of our world, and shelter the family we hold dear. Together, we will keep each other safe. Football is a team sport. And today, as members of our team, we need all of you.

Each one of us has the power to make a difference. To wash our hands regularly. To stay home if we’re sick, and safely distance ourselves. To protect. And when this is all over, we’ll be here, ready as ever. Be safe. Take care. Call your loved ones. Be a light to your community.

And as always, Go Dawgs!

- Coach Kirby Smart
