Recently, our Newnan team helped make a difference and show their appreciation as they hosted a First Responder Cook Out at one of the Fayette County Fire Stations. The team provided burgers, chips, and drinks for about 50 first responders.
Northwest has been hosting First Responder Cookouts across the Southeast since 2017, an initiative we look forward to every year. We can host up to 20 in a year, serving each area’s local community as a thank you. The team was grateful to give the first responders around Fayette County an opportunity to relax and eat. We set up cornhole boards for everyone to play, and we were able to tour the fire station and learn about what they do every day.
Having the opportunity to host these cookouts for our first responders means so much to our teammates involved. It’s an honor to be able to show even a small amount of the appreciation we have for all they do for us daily. Our Newnan teammates enjoyed the opportunity to serve their local responders and to learn more about their responsibilities and daily lives. Thank you, Newnan team!
At Northwest, we believe in making a difference. This is exactly what our Newnan service center did when they pursued the opportunity to serve their community. They came together and donated items to make Easter baskets. They were able to fully fill 16 baskets while donating all leftover items to be used in other baskets. These baskets included books, markers, crayons, coloring books, sticker books, eggs filled with candy, stuffed bunnies, bunny ears, and so much more.
They donated these baskets to Bridging the Gap, a nonprofit organization that provides food, clothing, and household goods to those struggling in their community. They have recently been a donation site to help those suffering from the tornado that hit their town. For Easter, Bridging the Gap partnered with local churches to come together and make sure that these children were still able to celebrate Easter.
While this past year has been tough for everyone, our Newnan team was so happy to help those in their community and continue the partnership created with Bridging the Gap. If you would like to learn more about how you can help, please visit Bridging the Gap’s website.
Our Newnan team is off to an incredible start in 2020! Looking inward to the team’s interests and passions has allowed them to see new opportunities to help their communities.
One goal the team has for the year is to volunteer with the local animal shelter and humane society more often. Some of the teammates spent their Sunday at the NCHS Orientation learning about the organization’s mission and how they can help serve the animals and adoptive families throughout the year. The team will be attending dog training in March, and they’re looking forward to helping with adoption days, clean up, and caring for the animals.
The team has also continued their focus on helping local organizations and bringing smiles to those in their community. They spent a few hours one Saturday sorting through donations at the Coweta Pregnancy Service, a local organization that supports women and families in the area. They also stopped by the Ansley Park Health and Rehabilitation Center to spend some time with the residents and wish them a happy Valentine’s Day! “One resident’s card had a typewriter on the front and that reminded him of one his dad used to have! He said we couldn’t understand how much that meant to him, and the great memories it brought back. This event not only touched the hearts of the residents but our team as well,” said Good Deed Team Ambassador, Angela C.
It truly has been an extraordinary February for the teammates of our Newnan office. They are a great example of a team that wants to Make a Difference in all they do. It is incredible to see teammates not only enjoy working together but also serving the community together. We are excited to see the upcoming projects and volunteering the Newnan team is up to next.
