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
6.2 million meals to hungry families.
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, 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.
