Celebrating Emory Cares International Service Day, GALA organized a group of alumni, faculty, staff and students on November 14th to volunteer in support of Lost-n-Found, a local organization which provides housing, clothing, support, showers and laundry for homeless Atlanta LGBT Youth.
Our group of 19 eager volunteers were first educated as to the mission of this wonderful organization’s outreach. We then fanned out through their very large Thrift Store to accomplish designated chores over the course of a 3-4 hour work day.
Lost-n-Found accepts donations of clothing, furniture, household items, and more which they sell to raise funds to support local homeless LGBT youth. For more information on Lost-n-Found, click here.
GALA is proud to support this very important charitable organization. All volunteers found the afternoon very satisfying and rewarding.
