Give a little back!
We would love to have you join us for a special day of giving with our partners at the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children.
Wednesday, May 18, 2016 from 10am - 1:30pm

We will meet on May 18th at the shelter to provide and serve lunches for the ladies and children in attendance. We are planning for the meals and finances now, but if you are interested in helping, volunteering, attending, or providing financial support, we would welcome your participation on the Community Service Committee. PCMA SE has been blessed by corporate donations that have helped to continue our support of the shelter’s work.  Historically, we have been able to donate $1,000 annually to further their efforts.  If you or your company would be able to help financially support the shelter, please contact Lee Williams at leighton.williams@freemanco.com.   
The homeless population in Atlanta continues to grow, and unfortunately children are affected by this as well.  Currently, there are over 7,000 homeless people in Atlanta, 2,000 of which do not have nightly shelter and of those, 1,300 are families with children.  We are fortunate to be part of a vibrant and growing hospitality industry in Atlanta, bringing people to our city and helping them to connect and with great experiences.  We are also fortunate to be able to give back to our hometown thanks to our generous members.  There are simple things we can all collect and share with the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children that can make the difference between having self-worth and being forgotten. The Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children helps homeless women and children by providing basic necessities we all take for granted such as shoes, clothing, and hygiene products, along with counseling, career education, and hot meals. The following items are ongoing needs for the shelter:
    •    Small (8oz or smaller) hand sanitizer
    •    Travel size toiletries
    •    Air Freshener (plug in or spray)
    •    Sweat Pants in all sizes
    •    Comfortable / Athletic Type Shoes
    •    Pens
    •    Watches (inexpensive)
    •    Day Planners or Small Calendars
There are so many exciting opportunities! By working together, we can all give back a little and truly impact and change lives. If you have a passion for helping others, we would love to have you join the Community Service Committee, please contact Lee Williams at leighton.williams@freemanco.com.
The Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children's mission is to ease the burden of homelessness for women and children and to assist in establishing self-sufficiency by providing comprehensive education and supportive services in a manner that respects human dignity.

There is no fee to participate in this event.
