homeaidHomeAid Atlanta has made sure that some deserving Georgia moms and babies had an even happier Mother’s Day this year with $24,000 in donated diapers, wipes and baby food.

HomeAid Atlanta, the designated charity of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, serves the homeless through housing and community outreach and holds a yearly community drive in time for Mother’s Day to collect essential baby care products.

In its 16th annual drive, the organization this year collected more than 134,000 items, valued at over $24,000. Area businesses and individuals hosted collections and made donations, and Atlanta-based UPS assisted with the delivery of items.

HomeAid Atlanta works in partnership with the building industry, as well as community building organizations, to assist people experiencing homelessness. Since its founding in 2001, HomeAid Atlanta has completed 76 housing, remodel and care day projects at locations that serve victims of domestic violence, teen mothers, veterans and more.

Non-profit organizations interested in working with state and local HBAs in charitable efforts are encouraged to fill out this form to make sure all members of the Federation know about partnership opportunities. To learn more, contact Lauren Wallace.
