Volunteers from Building Owners and Managers Association of Georgia (BOMA Georgia) and national homebuilder Lennar on Nov. 11 took part in HomeAid Atlanta‘s final Care Day of the year, providing maintenance and repairs to Calvary Refuge Center in Forest Park, which gives temporary shelter to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
Over 40 BOMA Georgia member companies and approximately 150 volunteers completed a variety of work, including a landscaping overhaul, indoor and outdoor painting, roof repairs, plumbing and electrical repairs, cleaning and more.
This work, along with materials donations, saved Calvary more than $60,000 on maintenance and repairs.
Over the last 13 years, BOMA Georgia has participated in eight HomeAid Care Days and several other HomeAid initiatives.
“Whether it was packing CareKits for the homeless population in Atlanta or BOMA Georgia’s other community-service project in support of the Atlanta Children’s Shelter in 2022, partners like HomeAid Atlanta are integral to building value for the people, communities and charities supported by our members in the commercial real estate industry,” said Jacob Wilder, BOMA Georgia senior director of operations and communications.
HomeAid completed 16 Care Days in 2022, which the group says resulted in over $135,000 in savings on maintenance and repairs for metro Atlanta homelessness organizations.
