PCMA SE Chapter 2015 Community Service Update

Bernie Wilke
The Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children is the main focus for our community service outreach. In April (TBD Wednesday), our chapter will be serving lunch.  Please be sure to watch for registration information at the beginning of March.

The Day Shelter works as part of the Atlanta Mission, which is the city’s largest and longest running provider of services to the homeless men, women and children. Established in 1938, the non-profit organization provides emergency shelter, temporary shelter, recovery programming, job attainment and transitional housing to more than 950 individuals. Through our donation of lunch, we cook, serve and cleanup what may be the only hot meal that the people receive for that day.

Even if you are not able to help serve in April, please remember that the following are always “need items” for the shelter:
  • Baby items like wipes, diapers and lotion
  • Unused hotel amenities like soap and shampoo
  • New, unopened makeup
  • Travel umbrellas
  • Ponchos
  • Re-usable water bottles

Please contact Bernie Wilke at bernie.wilke@eventsphere.com if you have any items to donate.
