RentPath generously donated laptops to Family Promise of Fulton/Gwinnett

We were like elves in the early morning whisked away on Santa’s sleigh to pack up laptops and desktops for donation to Family Promise of Cobb and Fulton/Gwinnett Counties and VEOHero! Sam, our friendly driver for the day flew our little team, Stephanie Rideaux, Betty Jasper and Sophia Johnson, up to Two Rivers IT Recovery where Curtis and his crew, Jesse and Elvis eagerly packed up our newly refurbished goods for donation. Then we were off! First stop, Family Promise of Fulton/Gwinnett where we were enthusiastically met by Paige Dillard (Director of Communications), Gerald Aldridge (Board Chair) and Jennifer Alexander (Social Worker) who described their good works, the families they help. They are sincerely thankful for our donation which will be used in service of helping families get back on their feet.

Next up was Family Promise of Cobb County. When Camilla Worrell (Director) first learned we had laptops available for donation, she “danced a dance of joy!” Camilla warmly greeted us and introduced us to her team, including Hale Sanders (Treasurer & Board Member). They are very excited to be able to present laptops to graduating families as they move into new homes and on with their lives.

If you aren’t familiar with Family Promise, they have an outstanding record of success in their mission to help end homelessness one family at a time. By partnering with communities and congregations across Atlanta and around the country, they transform the lives of families with children, who desperately need a home by providing shelter, vital services, education and healthcare through a wide volunteer network. Our donations came just in time for the holidays, a time when absolutely no child should be homeless.

Everyone at Family Promise is kind, generous, floored by our donations and can’t wait to partner with RentPath in the future. If you haven’t had a chance, please take time to volunteer. The joy you will bring to yourselves and those you support is unparalleled. Tis the Season!

Thanks also to Conor Hayes, Tracy Hamilton, Rabia Jalil and the RGB Team for helping make this day possible, we've donated nearly 100 laptops and desktops in October and this will definitely make a difference in the lives of the recipients.
