The goal of the Northwest Good Deed team is to bring simple, meaningful opportunities for Northwest teammates to create a positive impact in our communities. The Newnan team has taken this vision and applied action and heart. Led by Good Deed ambassador Brittany B., and empowered by managers David H. and Leslie M., the team has worked outside of the other Good Deed initiatives to see how they can create more of an impact in their local community of Newnan, GA.
In September the team took time on a Saturday to participate in a weekly event hosted by a local organization, Bridging the Gap. This event consisted of a drive-up food bank where families could receive items that they may need for the week.
In addition to participating in this local event, the team is currently collecting socks to donate to Bridging the Gap for homeless young women and adults. They have called on other Northwest service centers to help donate as many socks during ‘Socktober’ as possible.
When Newnan Branch Manager, David, found out about his team receiving the award he was excited; “What an honor for our team! Brittany has worked tirelessly to help get our team involved in these events. So proud of our team and of Northwest for giving us all the opportunity to serve our communities and to live and carry on the Northwest culture!”
Congratulations to the Newnan team on receiving the Good Deed Service Center of the Month award for September. This team is such a great example of putting people first and working to make a difference together.
