Cushman & Wakefield’s Atlanta office collected more than a hundred toys and gifts for the women and children of the Mary Hall Freedom House last week as part of the company’s nationwide Week of Giving. Mary Hall Freedom House is a nonprofit organization and national leader in gender-specific treatment, recovery, housing and support services to help women and women with children break the cycle of poverty, homelessness, mental health disorders, and addiction. This was the company’s third year providing assistance during the holiday season, sponsoring all of the children in the permanent housing/residence program in addition to 50 women.
Additionally, several of the properties Cushman & Wakefield manages participated in holiday giving programs this year:
- RiverEdge Summit collected holiday gifts for the Children’s Restoration Network, which serves close to 3,500 children living in group homes and shelters in 19 Metro Atlanta counties. The tenants collected a significant amount of gifts including clothes, bicycles, toys and more for infants to 18 year olds.
- Piedmont Center held a drive for the Atlanta Community Food Bank that resulted in a total of 918 pounds of food donations.
- The Tower gathered clean, gently used coats, jackets, sweatshirts, sweaters, mittens, hats and scarves for One Warm Coat, an organization that supplies a free warm coat to those in need. Additionally, a Toys for Tots drive is underway and will conclude this week.
- 271 17th Street created an Angel Tree, collecting gifts for children and seniors that overflowed from the lobby into two offices.
