WHY WE DO IT…
Having worked with local communities for decades we understand systemic change goes hand-in-hand with mentality change. We partner with organizations and projects that share in the following areas:
NO good deed goes unpunished
There was one instance where we were requested for a large donation (6 pallets). The pickup was about 45 minutes one way but there were clothes, shoes, and winter coats ready to distribute. We were blessed with 8 pallets and I still wonder how they fit. On the return trip the trailer tire blew out and they we sat stranded while doing good!
Food for the Soul
Initially, we thought we were providing food and clothes to the homeless and those in need but we quickly learned through projects like Maximum Impact Love, Trinity Soup Kitchen, and Hope and Life Thanksgiving outreach that what the world needs most is love.
We encourage our volunteers to interact with the people as they are being served. Our most productive outreach activities have resulted from partnerships with local churches and civic organizations. Without fail someone will say, “I came to be a blessing and lift them up and they ended up encouraging me”!!
We love it when we are met in the trenches with love and compassion.
In the Nick of Time
Toys for Tots warns organizations not to schedule their toy giveaway before they have received the toys. This particular year we didn’t listen and not only did we schedule an event…it was a huge County-sponsored event. Reporters were present, a local hotel catered the food, children were excited (so excited they didn’t realize we had NO toys!)
The event started at 11 and our toy pickup was for 11 the same day. Our pickup went off without a hitch and thankfully “Santa” showed up with a truck and trailer full of toys, everyone ate, everyone played, and the children got toys! Mr. Durden, was transformed into Santa (paper belly and all). It was a good day.
Women Empowerment (Red Tent)
In partnership with 100 Black Women of Atlanta, Hagar’s House Women and Children Shelter, Red Tent Atl., Women of Purpose, and others, The Infusion Inc. has provided emotional and spiritual support through group sessions, visioning, and life coaching to over 250 women in transition.
Learning to find the underlying cause of recurring challenges so we can move forward into health and wellness was always a blessing.
