AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists completed a month-long clothing and supply drive in support of the Downtown Rescue Mission in Huntsville, Alabama. A truckload donation of clothes, shoes and personal care items was delivered to the Downtown Rescue Mission on August 1st.
“We spend our working days helping homeowners repair and protect their homes,” notes Ben Bayless, Jr., President of AFS. “We can’t forget that there are people in our community who need our help. It’s important for our team to support those who don’t have a place to call home.” The entire AFS team contributed to the clothing and supply drive. Tammie Kirschner, an AFS Customer Service Lead, coordinated the office campaign. Kirschner promoted the drive among inspectors, technicians, service and repair crews as well as the in-office staff.

In the first seven months of 2012, the Downtown Rescue Mission has provided 27,563 lodging stays; 100,025 meals and 138 client transitions into permanent housing.
