On this Thanksgiving Day, we want to take a moment to thank all our first responders, healthcare providers, grocery clerks, bus drivers, teachers and others who have been on the front lines this past year helping to keep our community working and keeping us safe, our shelves well stocked and our community healthy.
We also want to thank our Mayor and City Council for their leadership by getting out in front of the pandemic in August and issuing a mask mandate in public spaces. We are also grateful to the city allocating hundreds of thousands of dollars of CARES Act funds to our local non-profits who are caring for our neighbors experiencing extreme hardships due to COVID-19.
And we’re sending thanks to the legions of volunteers and donors who have supported all of the food distribution and rent assistance programs offered throughout the city by our untiring non-profits such as Community Assistance Center, Los Niños Primero, Sandy Springs Mission and Solidarity.
There are literally thousands of people who donated their time or money.
To all of you, we appreciate your dedication and efforts to keep our city healthy, safe, and functioning.
