ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, July 27, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Easterseals North Georgia (ESNG), a community-based nonprofit that provides high-quality services to children with disabilities as well as families, expresses its gratitude after receiving a generous donation from local community partner. RSUI, an Atlanta-based company, has joined forces with United Way of Greater Atlanta to tackle food disparity in the community post-pandemic. In a heartwarming collaboration, RSUI and United Way packed 500 snack packs to be donated to the children of ESNG. The generous donations were delivered to 6 of the organization’s Northeast Georgia child development centers, ensuring that both young bodies and minds are nourished during challenging times.
The past year has brought unprecedented challenges to families across Georgia, with rising food insecurity and basic needs disparities. RSUI and United Way, recognizing the pressing need to support vulnerable communities, decided to take action. The 500 snack packs were thoughtfully assembled, containing a variety of nutritious and delicious goodies. In addition to the tasty treats, RSUI and United Way of Greater Atlanta emphasized the importance of literacy by including books for elementary school-aged students in each pack. These books aim to foster a love for reading and education.
The impact of these donations extends far beyond the nutritional aspect, sending a powerful message of support and compassion to the families served by ESNG during these difficult times. “Easterseals North Georgia is deeply grateful for the support from RSUI and United Way,” said Donna Davidson, President and CEO of Easterseals North Georgia. “The summer months are notoriously challenging for low-income families when access to food and learning materials is not readily available as it is when school is in session. The snack packs not only provide nutritious snacks but also show the children and their families that they are cared for and supported by their community.”
To ensure the packs reach the families who need them most, ESNG’s Center Managers and Family Support Advocates will work hand in hand to spread the word and distribute the packs to parents facing challenges in accessing food.
