For well over a decade, our friends at WSFA12 News and Dixie Electric Cooperative have held a one-day event to help local families make the holidays special…12's Day of Giving.
December 11th - the WSFA12 News tents were set up in front of the Walmart Superstore on Atlanta Highway from 5:00 AM until 7:00 PM, accepting donations of unused toys, non-perishable food and monetary donations.
And the River Region responded!
MAFB is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and an equal opportunity employer and provider.
Any donations made through our website are done so through a secure server. We never sell or rent our supporter's names.
12's Day of Giving - A Beautiful Day
Staff from Montgomery’s @UPS Customer Service on Jackson Ferry Road, are regular volunteers here at MAFB. Recently, before getting started on separating recent donations, they presented our CEO, Richard A. Deem (front left holding the check, with a huge smile) a $5,000 grant from UPS Foundation @UPS_Foundation, which is earmarked to support our Mobile Pantry/Exercise, Nutrition and Diet Program.
UPS encourages employee volunteering as part of their commitment to reach 20 million volunteer hours by 2020 #20Mby2020.
In fact, ongoing participation in our Volunteer Program, was an eligibility prerequisite for MAFB to receive the grant award. Rewarding…any way you look at it!
