My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Georgia Avenue Community Ministry, Atlanta, GA, USA
I am a freelance writer and have been working on a volunteer basis with Atlanta nonprofit organizations. I was introduced to the Georgia Avenue Cooperative Ministry's Food Coop through my husband, who is on the Board of the Atlanta Community Food Bank. When I heard about the Coop, I thought GACM would be an organization I would like to help. I visited the Coop just before Thanksgiving, and witnessed the strong spirit of community among the members. For a small fee, families are able to put food on their tables with pride. The members contribute not only money, but they gather at GACM on their assigned food distribution days, and when the truck arrives with the food, they distribute food to each family. All the while, there is a sense of faith and camaraderie. Chad Hale, the Executive Director, does a wonderful job coordinating all this, and he is the driving force for this important organization.
