Volunteers make major improvements at shelter for homeless and trafficked youth.

ATLANTA - Nov. 8, 2018 - eTradeWire -- Members of the Georgia Chapter of Community Associations Institute Chapter (CAI-Georgia) volunteered at a HomeAid Care Day at Covenant House Georgia on October 19.  This was HomeAid's second Care Day partnership with CAI-Georgia and the fifth time HomeAid has made improvements to the grounds and facilities at Covenant House Georgia.

CAI-Georgia volunteers completed an amazing amount of work, including a huge amount of landscaping and tree work all over the large Covenant House Georgia campus, and pressure washing sidewalks, walls, and entry steps. Volunteers painted two locker rooms and the exteriors of three cottages, organized toiletries and other essential items for residents, as well as cleaned and organized clothes closets and two storage sheds for arrival of donated furniture.   Additionally, the Masonry Association of Georgia, in partnership with CAI-Georgia, will install a monument in memory of youth lost to the streets.  Thank you to landscaping companies and Care Day volunteers for prepping the area for the monument.

HomeAid sponsors Sherwin-Williams and Meridian Brick & Masonry Supply also donated materials for this workday and lunch was provided by Northwest Exterminating Company's Good Deeds Team.
