Above left, McMichael & Gray supported the 2018 Essentials Drive in many ways, including donating funds and baby supplies, helping with sorting and delivery, and more. 

Above right, Meridian Brick & Masonry Supply generously provided warehouse space for the Essentials Drive, collected baby supplies, and picked up donations from drop-off sites at several other Atlanta area businesses.

At left, HomeAid board member Brad Shilling, center, of O'Kelley & Sorohan Attorneys at Law delivers donations to Sheltering Arms with the help of UPS, which has helped with Essentials Drive deliveries for 12 years in a row. 

HomeAid Atlanta would like to thank the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association for the overwhelming support of the 2018 Essentials Drive. Approximately 200,000 items, valued at almost $35,000, were donated to 25 Metro Atlanta non-profits serving homeless children and families, making this the most successful Essentials Drive to date!
