As the festivities of the holidays grow closer, it’s easy to get caught up in all the sights and sounds of the holidays or those shopping sprees, but it’s also important to keep in mind those that are less fortunate during the holiday season. And, as a part of the Atlanta real estate industry, HomeAid Atlanta should be top of mind when it comes to holiday giving.
HomeAid is a non-profit organization that provides transitional housing for the homeless in the metro Atlanta area and across the nation. It provides a stable environment for children, women and families to get back on their feet. Winter is particularly a time of need for the homeless with the shorter days and cooler temperatures. With our economy at its present state, we are finding more and more families out on the street. As you may know, HomeAid is a branch of the Greater Atlanta Home Builder Association and partners with builders from the HBA to help build and maintain housing for the homeless. It is definitely the non profit organization of the Atlanta home building industry, and now is the time to get involved and show support.
So what can you do to help? Well, there are many ways to get involved. Your personal donation or your company’s corporate sponsorship can greatly make a difference. Each home built by HomeAid generally gets at least three new families moving in and out each year, so you’re donations will benefit multiple lives over the coming years. We know times are tough, but your donation, no matter the size will be greatly appreciated. So, as the holidays approach, be sure to keep HomeAid in mind!
