In October, our Wildlife and Smyrna service centers joined each other to collect sneaker and book donations for a drive sponsored by Kids Care, Kindness in Doing Service Connecting and Respecting Everyone. Kids Care was started by a mother daughter duo who wanted the world to know that kids do care and can make impactful differences.
The sneakers and books our Wildlife and Smyrna teams graciously donated will be given to local nonprofits and charities including liveSAFE Resources in Marietta. Thank you to these two extraordinary teams; together they donated about 30 pairs of shoes and 40 books!
The Good Deed Team has continued to seek opportunities to serve safely, and this Sneaker and Book Drive–By and Drop Off aligned with COVID protocols perfectly. We are grateful for Wildlife and Smyrna’s willingness to serve our communities. For more information on Kids Care and how you can further volunteer, visit their website.
Our Newnan team is at it again with finding small, impactful ways to make a difference in Coweta county. While the team is currently practicing social distancing, they were able to find ways to help their community through the local Little Free Library and Newnan Coweta Humane Society.
A Newnan teammate, Angela C., donated the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series to the local Little Free Library. The Little Free Library is a place where people in the community can give books so others who may not be able to afford books can come and pick out ones to read. Angela’s son helped her with the donation, as he wanted to participate. They chose the books they wanted to donate on Internal Kids Book Day.
The Newnan team has also been very active with the Newnan Coweta Humane Society (NCHS), as helping the animals in their community was part of their 2020 goals. A Newnan teammate recently fostered Liberty, a dog that was found as a stray before being brought in by the NCHS. Liberty started off nervous, but over the last month, she has warmed up to the family and is showing more of her personality. The teammate is teaching her different commands and is excited for Liberty to find her forever home with a loving family.
Every month, it seems that the Newnan team finds more ways to give back to the community that they live and work in. The team plans to continue to look for ways to serve those around them and work with their partners to help however they can. We are thankful for the example that our Newnan team sets every day.
Seeing organizations, businesses, and the community come together to help one another has been especially inspiring during these difficult times. Our Northwest teammates in LaGrange, GA have taken that inspiration to look for more ways to help our community members on the frontline while practicing social distancing.
The team in LaGrange wanted to say thank you to the men and women who are caring for others and showing up every day to make a difference in their communities. The team donated over 50 meals to the Emergency Department team. The team’s hope was to let the staff know how appreciated they were, especially during this challenging time.
The team is also focusing their efforts in the community to the Salvation Army, community partners, and customer relationship requests throughout 2020. With the recent shift in our communities due to COVID-19, Northwest is looking for more ways to help through donations and volunteer time.
The Northwest Family is thankful to have teammates like those in LaGrange who look for the small ways to put others first and make a difference in impactful ways.
As March kicked off, no one quite expected the changes that would occur throughout the month. With home schooling, people working from home, business policy changes, and everyone practicing social distancing, it has been a strange and unprecedented time for most. Our Good Deed Team leaders, Kristen and Greg, wanted to honor the space and changes necessary while remaining involved within the communities we serve.
When the news first broke that students would be completing classes from home, Greg and Kristen worked together with a local elementary school team to put together and hand out food items to around 100 families. Knowing that for many kids, their main meals come from school, made this an important opportunity for the Good Deed Team to help! Greg returned the following week to put together andgive out over 150 bags of food and toiletry items to the families.
Looking for more ways to help students and families during this time, Greg and Kristen were able to make over 50 gallons of laundry detergent to donate to other local elementary schools in the communities we serve! Along with the detergent, they donated books, coloring books, crayons, and Easter treats for the kids to enjoy. All the items were dropped off to be distributed to the families.
It is truly extraordinary to see people in our communities stepping up to help each other – from businesses to non-profits to individuals on their own, seeing everyone come together during a difficult time shows how much everyone cares. We are thankful for Kristen and Greg finding ways to help and small ways to make a difference, even from a distance!
It is important to note that the Good Deed Team reached out to these schools ahead of time to coordinate how best to help during these circumstances. If you are wanting to volunteer or donate, please reach out to the school or business beforehand to make sure that all necessary precautions are taken!
The year of 2020 is full steam ahead, and the first three months have already been incredible for Northwest and the Northwest Good Deed Team! As we plan for all 2020 has in store, we wanted to take a moment to look back on all we had the opportunity to be a part of in 2019, all the people and the organizations that we were able to work with to help make a difference.
Each year, the Good Deed Team hosts First Responder Cookouts throughout the communities that we live and work in, and 2019 was no different. We held 25 Cookouts and were able to feed over 9,000 people through it all. The most rewarding thing about the Cookouts is connecting with the first responders in our communities who go above and beyond for each of us every day. It’s those connections that have allowed us the opportunity to cookout for the upcoming Metro-Atlanta Firefighters Conference, which host firemen from all over the state. Our team couldn’t be more thrilled to serve these men and women lunch as they train to better protect their communities!
Another focus of the Good Deed Team each year is our local schools. In 2019, we were able to host 10 Bilingual Family Literacy Program events and 18 career days, donate 250 school backpacks, and gift 1,700 books. Supporting local schools has always been an important focus for the team because we believe that every child deserves a positive school experience! Whether it’s helping with a Mystery Reader program or an upcoming field trip, creating an experience that the kids can enjoy and will remember is truly amazing and something we plan to continue.
With every teammate’s passion and interest different, we get to help in a wide array of categories! From collecting items to donate to local shelters to building bunk beds for organizations that give them back to those in need, each year brings something new for the Good Deed Team to dive into. In 2019, we were able to volunteer with 3 Children’s Hospitals, in Savannah, Macon, and Augusta, to help bring a bit of joy and fun during a few holidays for the kids currently being treated. Volunteering with the local Children’s Hospitals is something we’re hopeful to continue in 2020 and beyond, with our Savannah office looking forward to celebrating many holidays to come with the children.
What started as a small mission to create a positive impact in the communities that we live and work in has grown to what the Good Deed Team is today: a team full of people working together, consistently looking outward into their communities to see where they can best help or serve those around them. Looking back, 2019 was an incredible year for us to focus on the people and organizations that mean so much to the teammates of Northwest. We know that 2020 is just another chance for us to serve more, help better, and bring even more opportunities for our teammates to make a difference.
