With the start of the fourth and final quarter of the year, thoughts return to community involvement and year-end giving. As the holiday festivities grow closer, it’s easy to get caught up in all the sights and sounds of the holidays and shopping sprees. It’s 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 a top priority when it comes to giving back during the holiday season.
HomeAid is a non-profit organization that provides transitional housing and a stable environment for homeless men, women, children and families in the metro Atlanta area and across the nation. Winter is especially hard for the homeless with the shorter days and colder temperatures making it more difficult to find shelter. 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. Winter is especially hard for the homeless with the shorter days and colder temperatures making it more difficult to find shelter. Another factor to consider is the present state of the economy and its effects on the growing population in the metro area, the holiday season is a crucial time to get and involved and show support for families suffering from or on the brink of homelessness.
Show support for the nonprofit organization of the Atlanta home building industry through personal donations and corporate sponsorships. Each home built by HomeAid provides housing for three new families each year, substantially impacting multiple lives through each donation. Times are hard, but it is much harder for those without secure housing. A donation of any size is appreciated and as the holidays arrive, don’t forget to give back to your community as well as loved ones.
