As Coro CARES gears up for another great year, we reflect on the fun we had giving back in 2015. Thank you to all who helped us in our efforts to give back to the community by contributing time, money, food and so much more.
Coro CARES helped 3rd Battalion - Kilo Company - Platoon 3073 CRUSH the CRUCIBLE by sending hundreds of protein bars to keep them powered up during the difficult challenge. What is the Crucible? It is a 54 hour, 40 mile challenge that must be completed with only 8 hours of sleep total. This challenge must be completed for them to become Marines. Protein bars are the perfect ready to eat meal because they are light weight yet can help sustain the Marine for long periods of time.
Coro CARES delivered candy filled care packages to the Ronald McDonald House and the AMC Food Bank. Treat bags were filled with candy favorites and delivered to two charitable organizations with hopes to bring smiles to those in need.
Coro helped celebrate Shoebox Project’s 10th Anniversary by helping more homeless women and children than ever!
It’s the 10th Anniversary of United Way’s Shoebox Project. In 2006, United Way collected 1,500 shoeboxes for homeless women and children. In just nine years, the initiative has seen huge success with more than 44,000 shoeboxes collected and distributed to homeless women and children across Greater Atlanta in 2014.
Coro wrapped and filled shoeboxes with items like shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, brushes, raincoats, sunscreen, band-aids, and much much more.
Coro CARES and Meals on Wheels Atlanta Home Repair Services (HRS) teamed up to change the lives of deserving Seniors whose homes needed a little LOVE. The Goal? To keep the Senior safe, ensure their home is
accessible and allow them to remain in it for as long as possible. It was a great day in the Home Repair Department!! Two of our senior home owners got home repairs that would not be possible without the Coro Cares Team!!
Thanks to Coro Realty Advisors and some of their contractors that also donated their time!
Coro CARES partnered with The Kyle Pease Foundation and joined in to participate in the Holcombe Bridge Hustle 5K to benefit Holcombe Bridge Middle School. It was a pretty cold day, but the atmosphere was so upbeat that no one was really complaining about the cold. Coro CARES raced along side a Kyle Pease Foundation athlete and placed 3rd in the Assisted Athlete Division! Way to go Kyle Pease Foundation and Coro CARES.
Coro is introducing a new fundraising and community outreach program called Coro CARES.
