Essentials for Young Lives Drive a Great Success!

HomeAid Atlanta extends a special thanks to everyone who supported the 2011 Essentials for Young Lives Drive to make it a great success. With your generous support, we collected more than 72,000 "essential" items, such as diapers and baby wipes, for homeless moms and their babies.  This was our largest collection to date!  All the items collected were distributed on May 5 with the assistance of UPS to seven local nonprofit organizations that serve homeless families and young children. With 42 percent of homeless children in Georgia being under the age of 6, the donations were a very welcomed sight at each of the recipient organizations.

Among those who partnered with HomeAid to collect items for the drive this year were The Atlanta Academy, Atlanta Remodelers Council, Atlanta Sales & Marketing Council, Bank of America, Boral Bricks, Bucknell University Alumni Club of Atlanta, CB Richard Ellis, CharterBank, Coldwell Banker NRT Development Advisors, Cooper Homes, Dunwoody Baptist Church, Evolv, Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, IIDA Student Chapter of the Art Institute of Atlanta, John Willis Homes, Lincoln Property Management Company, LoanSouth Mortgage, Mast Custom Woodworks, MetLife Home Loans, mRelevance, Northwest Exterminating, Oneida Builders, Purdy Real Estate, State Bank & Trust Company, SunTrust, Technology Dependent Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite Campus, Upper Cervical Health Centers of America, Valley Brook Baptist Church, Weissman, Nowack, Curry & Wilco, and many others.

Thank you to everyone who was involved for joining us to provide essentials for young lives!
