Operation GroundHUG connects young and old
Groundhug
Operation GroundHUG founder Logan Cornelison visits with seniors recently as part of his organization’s mission to connect young and old.

Fourteen-year-old Logan Cornelison cares about senior citizens. 

He cares so much, in fact, that he’s started a non-profit organization that aims to inspire young people to get involved with folks on the other end of the age spectrum.

Cornelison, a student at Cornerstone School in Cumming, founded Operation GroundHUG “to inspire young people to get involved on the ‘ground level’ to connect with seniors and show them we care.”

Added Cornelison: “I just like to help people out a lot.”

Recently, the organization held its first ever fundraiser — a raffle at his school with the winner receiving a ride to class from the Forsyth County Sheriff in a police car.

The winner of the event was honored Nov. 8: Sammy Ruiz, a fifth grader at Cornerstone.

The group currently has five members, and Cornelison said he hopes word will spread and the organization will grow.
