A fantastic organization in the metro Atlanta area, Juneau Construction Company summer interns recently paired up with HomeAid Atlanta for a Care Day celebration at Solomon’s Temple Foundation. The organization’s mission is to provide transitional and emergency housing and programs to promote independence among women and their children experiencing homelessness. Juneau Construction Company interns participated in the hands-on working day, administering much-needed upgrades and repairs to elevate the organization and its purpose for future endeavors.
Volunteers completed a long list of necessary tasks around the foundation’s campus, including a deep clean of all four intake rooms, storage closet organization, furniture assembly, bed repairs and landscaping.
The ninth HomeAid Care Day in 2022, this past volunteer effort is the seventh Care Day at Solomon’s Temple Foundation in seven years.
“We are so appreciative of your kindness and all the hard work performed at our facility. We are excited and look forward to continuing this amazing partnership in the future,” said Valerie Hampton, Solomon’s Temple Foundation Director of Programs and Facilities.
A company that places great importance on community involvement, Juneau Construction Company encourages and supports participation in service activities that contribute to the betterment of the surrounding community. The company makes an effort to participate in several events annually while also encouraging individual participation in outreach activities.
The recent HomeAid Care Day contributed $5,200 in savings towards Solomon’s Temple Foundation, thanks to the hard work of volunteers. The financial support allows Solomon’s Temple Foundation to focus less on maintenance and more on providing care and programs for the families it serves, like residents Doni and her five-year-old son, Zamonie.
Diagnosed with autism at the age of two, Zamonie arrived at the foundation very reserved. Doni thought the number of families in residence at Solomon’s Temple Foundation would overwhelm her son. However, the constant interaction with residents and staff transformed Zamonie into an inquisitive, verbal and outdoorsy boy with an exceptional understanding of computers and endless smiles. Doni is thrilled about her son’s progress, thanks to the loving, familial environment provided at Solomon’s Temple Foundation.
