5th Annual Back to School Bash - Columbia Residential+Variety of Georgia - Team members

Strengthening Neighborhoods With Our 5th Annual Back to School Bash

Columbia Residential and the Resident Services Department would like to thank all of our community partners and volunteers that supported our 5th Annual Back to School Bash. In two hours, more than 950 backpacks, school supplies, and meals were provided to event attendees. This event shows the positive on-going community impact and corporate social responsibility Columbia Residential’s Resident Services Department has in the Metro Atlanta area. With more than 25 community partners, this event helped families save approximately $87.00 per child on school supply expenses.

A special acknowledgment goes to Chase Evangeline Andrews, Executive Director of Variety – The Children’s Charity of Georgia, Tent 21, for receiving Columbia Residential’s inaugural Community Champion Award. Variety – The Children’s Charity of Georgia, Tent 21 has been an amazing community partner supporting Columbia Residential families and communities.

“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agrees to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
