Literacy Kits and Snack Packs for Atlanta Youth23rd January 2018
As part of our ongoing #EmeraldCubeCares initiative, we gathered today to give back to our local community in Atlanta, GA. During our fourth year of service with the United Way of Greater Atlanta, the EmeraldCube team donated materials and spent the morning building literacy kits and snack packs for Atlanta youth.
The 150 literacy kits were packed with composition books, folders, novels, pens, jump drives, and various other school related materials. In addition, handmade bookmarks were designed by the EmeraldCube team. The kits will be delivered to East Atlanta Kids Club, a nonprofit, out-of-school-time tutoring, mentoring and enrichment program for under-resourced girls and boys ages 7 to 17. http://www.eastatlantakids.org
In addition, the team built 500 snack packs filled with healthy non-perishable food items. The snack packs will be delivered today to Easter Seals of Warsaw and Mansell. Easter Seals North Georgia provides high-quality services to ensure that all children with disabilities or other special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. http://www.easterseals.com/northgeorgia/
It was a very fulfilling morning for the team, as we put our own personal touch on making a difference in the lives of Atlanta youth. A special thank you to United Way of Greater Atlanta for making the event possible.
