Atlanta, GA – The Atlanta Apartment Association’s Food-a-Thon, which is the annual food drive benefitting the Atlanta Community Food Bank, set a new record this year. The Food-a-thon is the largest food drive in the state, and this year collected enough nonperishable food to provide 6.2 million meals to hungry families.
This accomplishment was particularly worthy of celebrating at CFLane, which received two awards for its involvement:
· CFLane received the award for collecting the most food items.
· Carrington Point Apartments in Douglasville, Ga., which CFLane manages, received the award for creating the Best Food Drive Display.
“Our industry had its best year yet and exceeded expectations for the food drive,” said CFLane’s Director of Marketing & Training Ka'Ren Sarvis. “Plus, our CFLane family went above and beyond to make a difference in fighting hunger.”
The Atlanta Apartment Association bestowed the awards at the Annual AAA STAR Award Dinner Nov. 21. The Food-a-Thon runs from June through October. It includes donation barrels, fund-raisers and other events to create awareness. This year’s theme was “CANsino!”
The Food-A-Thon is the single most significant contribution the Atlanta Apartment Association makes to a charitable organization each year.
