ARAMARK Volunteers

 

 

On October 4th, 2012, volunteers from ARAMARK partnered with the Atlanta Mission to create the ARAMARK Building Community Opportunity Zone at The Shepherd’s Inn.

 

 

 

The purpose of this building is to provide ongoing nutrition and wellness resources for members of the Atlanta homeless community. Employee volunteers from ARAMARK transformed an underused lot into a dedicated recreation and fitness area, and also worked toward revitalizing a community garden that previous ARAMARK volunteers created.

 

 

What a great way for ARAMARK to give back to the community!

Cox Conserves Heroes

 

Cox Conserves Heroes recognizes local environmental volunteers and makes donations to local nonprofits on their behalf.  

 

 

 

The national program takes place in cities across the country.  Volunteers are nominated by the public, which then votes for their favorite. It’s a great way for the public to recognize the unsung heroes in their communities and for Cox to find worthy, local causes! This year’s winner Donna Shearer won $10,000 for her organization, Save Georgia’s Hemlocks. Congratulations, Donna!

 

 

Association for Healthcare Philanthropy

What an honor it was to be around this interesting group of people at the annual Association for Healthcare Philanthropy conference last October!

 

 

At The Westin Peachtree Plaza, six new members were honored as fellows- the highest level of achievement in the field of healthcare philanthropy. 

 

 

 

 

Jerry A. Linzy accepted the Harold J. (Si) Seymour award, the AHP’s highest honor, which recognizes distinguished leadership in Association affairs.

 

 

 

The AHP advocates advancement of nonprofit health care institutions and organizations through the enhancement of its members’ performance and professionalism.  More information can be found here.

 

Cox Volunteers

We get to work with the generous people at Cox all year long, and this was a particularly perfect day to get your hands dirty. 

 

 

They are always volunteering at something– this time was at the Reverand James Orange Oakland City Park in Atlanta in celebration of the first Team Cox Volunteer Day.

 

 

Over 200 Cox employees spent the day cleaning, landscaping, and painting at the park to help raise money for United Way of Greater Atlanta, Earthshare of Georgia and the Cox Employee Relief Fund

 

 

 

 

We love experiencing the giving spirit of these Cox employees! 

 

 

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Circle of Care

 

Every year, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta hosts an event to thank the donors in their Circle of Care.  

 

 

 

 

This year featured the story of Parker and was held at a private donor’s home.

What a beautiful event for a truly touching cause!
