Here at the Southern Oaks Apartments in Stone Mountain, GA we are excited to continue ID-100116159-300x199our participation with a great local charity event to benefit those less fortunate. The event we are talking about is the 2014 Annual Atlanta Food-A-Thon.

Led by the Atlanta Apartment Association, this is an annual community service project with contributions from apartment communities all around Atlanta and its neighboring towns. It runs between June 24th and October 10th and we are hoping to donate a significant amount of canned goods.  The sum total of the donations will be donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank and will help thousands of those in need.  Your donation will be distributed to over 600 charities all across the state of Georgia.  More than 50% of those served in soup kitchens across the state are children.   to participate, all you have to do is bring your donations by the office and we will take care of the rest.

Items needed are:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Macaroni & Cheese
  • Spaghetti Noodles
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Infant Formula
  • Canned Soups
  • Canned Veggies & Fruits
  • Rice
  • Cornmeal
  • Oatmeal
  • Baking Mixes

The Food-A-Thon will culminate in a Parade and Block Party on Friday, October 10th from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Check it out and share your thoughts with us on Facebook!
