Homeaid Atlanta
HomeAid Atlanta's 18th Annual Essentials Drive has started and runs through May 7 in honor of Mother's Day! The Essentials Drive is HomeAid's city-wide effort to collect essential items for Atlanta's homeless infants and their families. You can help by donating diapers, wipes, baby formula, or baby food. (Donations are tax deductible.) Bring your donations to the GAHBA office or click here to find a drop-off location near you!
Pictured above, the Professional Women in Building Council (PWB) got an early start on the Essentials Drive by collecting items at their April meeting! Shown here are PWB members Heather Bounds of Northwest Exterminating, left, and Michelle Valente Lee of Morris, Manning & Martin. 
These generous organizations and individuals empower HomeAid Atlanta to achieve its mission of building new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. Without them, HomeAid’s work would not be possible.
