Georgia Avenue Community Ministry
November 30, 2010
I love Georgia Avenue Community Ministeries ! I first learned of GACM while living in their neighborhood among them during the 1980's for two years. At this time I began to see & understand the need of lower income families and individuals whose most basic needs were being met through the food Co-op right out of the Georgia Avenue Church. GACM is a hands on service and Beacon of light to those who need and deserve help and a boost up the most.
Over the years and decades I have been fortunate to stay in touch and up to date with those keeping the engine fueled and working for the same area for over twenty years. The commitment by director Chad Hale and his team has endured the test of time and has helped countless people who are down on the their luck and or under severe misfortune. A Beacon of light indeed.
Last December I was fortunate enough to pass through South East Atlanta twice and made a point of stopping in at the Wednesday afternoon community lunch. It was awesome to see so many people gathered in the Ga. Ave church basement. I ate with these folks and they welcomed me heartily to make me feel, I a passer through, was their friend. It refreshed me to see such a dynamic love in action.
Ga. Ave Community ministeries is a vital artery of life giving and affirmative support for countless dozens and hundreds who other wise would most lokely be left in dire isolation and abandonment.
I whole heartedly endorse their efforts to make a signifacant difference among the less fortunate.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
During a visit two times through Ga Ave. community ministeries last year I was pleasantly welcomed and made to feel at home among the staff, volunteers and members who were engaged in life altering on going change one day at a time year in and year out.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would like to see more financial support coming in to this organization so that more people could benifit from its presence.
General Member of the Public & I've only witnessed first hand the commitment and dedication of GACM to meet basic need and change the lives of those who depend upon the food Co op.
