An estimated 30 ACMR employees participated in a holiday toy drive that benefitted the Children’s Restoration Network, a Roswell-based nonprofit that has served homeless children and their mothers in metro Atlanta for more than 20 years.
CRN’s mission is to offer hope and support with the goal of enabling children and their mothers to break the cycle of homelessness. As part of the program dubbed “12 Days of Caring,” CRN strives every December to ensure a memorable and meaningful Christmas for more than 2,700 local homeless children.
ACMR Human Resources Manager Julie Gentzke led the drive. The donated gifts included a Razor scooter, dolls and coloring books – five loads in all that Gentzke brought to CRN’s offices for a “Wrap Party” that the organization held on Dec. 21 at Roswell Town Center.
ACMR employees also participated in the Empty Stocking Fund, which has provided gifts during the holidays for children from birth to 12 years of age since 1927. Through the Empty Stocking Fund, employees and corporations make monetary gifts that benefit children living in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties. The average cost of gift packages that children receive is $20.
