HomeAid Atlanta is pleased to announce it recently completed another successful Care Day in Atlanta! On Wednesday, June 6, HomeAid partnered with volunteers from FOX Sports South and FOX International for a Care Day at Clifton Sanctuary Ministries in Atlanta. The Care Day was part of 21st Century Fox Impact Week, the company’s global initiative that gives its employees the opportunity to serve others while shining a light on local organizations that serve the community at large.
The team of 30 FOX Sports South and FOX International volunteers completed a major landscaping overhaul, resulting in a total transformation of Clifton’s grounds. This hardworking group completed several task that were greatly needed, including clearing out overgrowth, cutting back plants, weeding, painting picnic tables, mulching and mowing the expansive lawn. In total, the work completed during the Care Day provided Clifton with a financial savings of more than $6,000! In addition, Budget Dumpster generously donated two large dumpsters for landscaping debris, and both were filled beyond capacity by the end of the day.
“It was a wonderful day, and seeing the overall transformation of the property was inspiring,” said Stephanie Isenberg, FOX Sports South Marketing Manager. “We hope we made their house feel more like a home for the Clifton residents.”
Leslie Prince, Clifton Board President said, “There is no way we can adequately say thank you to HomeAid, FOX Sports South and FOX International for all of their efforts to make Care Day happen. The property looks absolutely magnificent; we are so proud and I know our neighbors are thrilled.”
Clifton is a short-term emergency shelter and transitional housing facility for homeless men aged 35 and older who seek self-sufficiency and independent living. In addition, Clifton provides life-changing programs that include financial counseling and job and life skills training.
HomeAid Atlanta is nearing completion on a renovation project at Clifton, led by volunteer Builder Captain Pat Morgan of First Street Builders. The project includes the remodel and repair of both the transitional and emergency housing facilities.
