|2015 Community Service Project|
Committed to Community Wellness
Committed to community wellness and environmental responsibility through the use of synthetic turf, STC members enthusiastically come together to build a field that increases opportunities for children to be active and play outside. The STC’s Community Service Projects to benefit Stuart-Hobson Middle School (2011) in D.C. and SafeHaven of Tarrant County (2012) in Dallas, TX have been huge successes – lots of media coverage about synthetic turf, the industry, and the STC; recognition by the Secretary of Education and the First Lady’s Let’s Move office – and treasured memories for those who participated and witnessed the dedication ceremonies.
The STC Board has identified City of Refuge as an equally worthy candidate for a similar project in downtown Atlanta, the host city for our 2015 Annual Membership Meeting on October 5-7. This project will generate strong media and public relations attention and will provide even greater awareness for the City of Refuge and its programs for the homeless women and children it serves.
About City of Refuge
Started in 1997, the City of Refuge is a non-profit organization dedicated to community development efforts that lead to the stability and sustainability of the local community. In 2003, City of Refuge was donated a 200,000+ sq. ft. warehouse on an eight-acre tract on Joseph E. Boone Blvd. in downtown Atlanta.
The mission of City of Refuge is to bring light, hope and transformation to Atlanta’s last, lost and least. This may sound like an impossible task. But spend a day walking our streets and talking to those who call City of Refuge their home, their place of work and their place of service, and you’ll start to see that miracles can and do happen here.
We provide resources that arrest crisis; restore self-respect and transition individuals and their families back on the road to independence and positive social engagement with life-building tools to individuals and families in Atlanta who are living on the margins. Our services span multiple areas of need – from food, clothing and shelter to job training, placement, housing, healthcare and education. Our goal is to provide access to and information about the best possible opportunities for success to those who are willing to work hard for positive change.
