For the third consecutive year, almost all of Lennar Atlanta’s sales associates got together this week to prepare 2,000 lunches for children who otherwise might go hungry during the summer, when school is out.
Inspired by the Cobb Association of REALTORS® (CAR), whose members work together with MUST Ministries, 16 Atlanta-based Lennar Atlanta professionals, together with representatives of other participating companies, spent a full day preparing 2,000 sack lunches for distribution later this week to underserved children. Each lunch includes a sandwich, a drink, a fruit roll-up and other treats, and comes in a bag that is decorated by volunteers as well.
According to a recent article in the Marietta Daily Journal, “MUST Ministries is a faith-based organization that provides food, housing, employment services and clothing to men, women and children in poverty, with offices in Cobb and Cherokee counties.
This summer, MUST plans to serve 250,000 sack lunches to children in eight counties during the 10 weeks of summer.”
“We are delighted to be able to donate our time and resources to be part of this meaningful effort to feed kids who are going without their daily school lunches during the summer,” says Ginny Bryant, Director of Sales for Lennar Atlanta. “Every year, the Lennar Atlanta team has a great time, and we even though we go home smelling of mustard, we leave with big grins on our faces.”
“MUST Ministries’ slogan is: ‘hope is a must’ – and we want to be part of this important outreach program in our communities,” notes Bryant.
A powerful, volunteer-driven organization, MUST addresses the basic needs of individuals, families and children with facilities in the Cobb and Cherokee counties and programs in numerous other counties.
