Recently Atlanta Curb Appeal was able to give back to the East Cobb and North Georgia community by participating in a special way, by helping the Anna Crawford Center of Cherokee County. They put on an annual light display called, “Holiday Lights of Hope.” Over 25,000 people attended last year.
The Anna Crawford Center is a nonprofit, community-based organization that works to break the cycle of child abuse through prevention and intervention services. It is an amazing foundation and Atlanta Curb Appeal was glad to volunteer our services.
How did you connect with Holiday Lights of Hope?
We are the second largest client of the East Cobb Home Depot store. We have a long and healthy relationship with the employees and the managers at that location.
Who participated in the build?
Andy, Rudi Anderson and myself [Avi Moyal] were there that day.
How did Atlanta Curb Appeal help?
They asked us to help with the roof and structure build out. The Anna Crawford Center and their suppliers provided everything else.
How long did it take?
We were there from Friday morning until dark. We worked hard, but we enjoyed ourselves immensely as you can see by the pictures!
How did it make you feel to participate in such a project?
We were thrilled to be invited to help this important cause. Of course; we accepted, and I immediately blocked the date for Andy and me in the calendar. Honestly, even though we are very busy right now before the holidays, we felt in our hearts that it is much more important to help others including our bigger supplier, Home Depot.
Are there plans to participate in more projects like these going forward?
The Home Depot of East Cobb is a very well organized store with an amazing team. Ryan Leblanc, the store manager, is an outstanding manager that assists us greatly with most of our supplies and deliveries. Their store handles many ‘volunteer with friends’ activities. If we get invited again, we will happily join in!
