On November 1, members of Community Associations Institute – Georgia Chapter (CAI-Georgia) volunteered at a HomeAid Atlanta Care Day at Solomon’s Temple. HomeAid provides free-of-charge Care Days to tackle maintenance tasks and repairs for nonprofits that serve Atlanta’s homeless population. Solomon’s Temple provides emergency and transitional housing and programs for homeless women and their children.
CAI Georgia’s Cares Committee has a mission to build better communities by engaging in service to bring CAI-Georgia members together for the common good of others. The dedicated and hardworking volunteers spent the day painting, installing baseboards, doing major landscaping and tree work, cleaning, replacing ceiling tiles, organizing supplies, and much more throughout the three-story facility. The work of these volunteers made a major impact at Solomon’s Temple, freshening the interior and transforming the grounds to make the facility feel more like home.
In addition to the many generous CAI-Georgia member companies who volunteered at the HomeAid Atlanta Care Day, the following companies contributed materials or professional services to ensure the project was finished:
- Able Building Group/Access Management Group
- Atlanta Glass & Mirror
- B Green
- BCJ Building Services
- Crabapple Landscaping
- Northwest Exterminating
- Russell Landscaping
- Wise Guys Pro Wash
“Community Associations Institute of Georgia is motivated by the great work of HomeAid Atlanta. We are thrilled to be in partnership with them to help people in need within our communities. Over 75 volunteers from our Chapter came out unselfishly and willingly to work together for Solomon’s Temple. It was truly wonderful to watch same-industry companies come together, putting aside business competition and working for the common good. Our CAI Cares team is awesome!” said Tina Saadat, CAI-Georgia Executive Director. This was HomeAid’s third annual Care Day with CAI-Georgia and the final HomeAid Care Day of 2019.
