Helping the Homeless
A group of Chick-fil-A employees recently spent the day in downtown Atlanta, preparing snacks and organizing clothes for the homeless.
About a dozen employees carpooled to the Hosea Feed the Hungry Warehouse on March 29, where they spent the day sorting donated clothing and assembling nearly 1,000 snack bags for homeless families.
“There is a great deal of need in our community for people to help even just a little,” says Dave Villiger, Management Consultant - Northern Region. “The people at Hosea are awesome. They give so much to help so many. It made us feel great and rewarded to help, but it also made us feel very small. I plan to get my kids more involved.”
Hosea Feed the Hungry serves more than 61,000 families a year, providing rental and utility assistance, emergency food boxes, clothing, toiletries and more. “The area we’re located in is one of the least served in the city,” says Tara Omilami, Director of Volunteer Services for Hosea Feed the Hungry. “Groups like Chick-fil-A enable us to shine a little more light into these peoples’ lives and bring them closer to being self-sustainable.”
