Falcons fans, there's a lot to be proud of today. Maxwell House announced today that the Adamsville Recreation Center in Atlanta will be receiving one of five $50,000 grants, thanks in large part to all your votes.
The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation and the Falcons Youth Foundation teamed up with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed to transform city rec centers into Centers of Hope. With Adamsville being selected based on popular votes to receive the grant, everyone who voted helped push that very important initiative.
According to the Drops of Good website: "Rebuilding Together of Atlanta is answering the call with volunteer help to ensure people get the support they need to succeed. Rebuilding Together Atlanta is one of 200 affiliates nationwide serving 10,000 low-income homeowners and community centers annually."
The renovation date hasn't been set yet, but the grant is expected to go toward, "Helping improve the structure of the building (to) help renovate the lives of those who use it."
