Atlanta Mission: 3/100

Atlanta Mission: 3/100

At Brand Vaughan Lumber, we partner with the Atlanta Mission, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending homelessness, and we strive to be a resource for them as they work towards their goal. In February of 2018, we sponsored an at-risk individual to go through Atlanta Mission’s transformation model, which takes someone experiencing homelessness and gets them back on their feet through the Mission’s holistic program.

Part of this sponsorship led us to “Run in the Cold For Those Who Sleep in the Cold,” a 5k organized by the Atlanta Mission. One registration fee for this race covers one night of services at the Mission’s shelter. About 20 people from our team participated in the 5k, despite the frigid, wet conditions. The run not only kept us warm, but it also gave us the opportunity to meet the brave people being transformed by the Atlanta Mission. It was inspiring to hear about their successes and to be able to come together as a team to help the community.
