By: HomeAid Atlanta
Jean Hilyard, HomeAid Atlanta Director of Community Engagement said, "This was Overhead Door Company's (ODC) fifth HomeAid Care Day, and it was amazing the amount of work that they accomplished. HomeAid is honored partner with Overhead Door Company of Atlanta."
HomeAid and Clifton Sanctuary Ministries also recruited volunteers to help. Kathy Boylen from ODC said, “The homeless men who unconditionally worked beside us with big smiles and strong will, as well as others from Clifton Sanctuary Ministries staff and board, and the HomeAid team made this day even better. I don't think there has ever been a project I have worked on with HomeAid that the people we were to help, helped us.”
Gordon Slade, Clifton Sanctuary Ministries Board Member, expressed his gratitude for all that was accomplished as well. “The HomeAid Care Day was a great Saturday workday with Overhead Door. It was so well organized and the energy and workmanship was amazing.”
