ATLANTA DAY SHELTER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN INC
March 22, 2011
Atlanta Day Shelter was a great choice for our annual AWF holiday service day. We were able to feel like we really made a difference for the organization and the women and children whom they serve. Atlanta Day Shelter staff were very organized and enthusiastic about our gifts. They let us have hands-on service in the lunchroom with the clients and also gave us a variety of afternoon projects in their clothes closet. It felt great to help them catch up with the many donations they were receiving and to watch the women shop for winter clothes. We were so inspired by our afternoon there that we came back and began a collection box to take to them with toiletries, undies and baby items. Some staff also made unsolicited financial contributions. The work was needed, appreciated and inspirational!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing the appreciation of the clients for food and clothing, reviewing their programs for kids, and seeing the women learning computer skills. They are making a difference there.
