KeepCalling supported the expats in Atlanta by participating in the fundraising event organized by St. Constantine and Helen church.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 22, 2013
This September, KeepCalling joined efforts with the Romanian orthodox community in Atlanta, Georgia, to protect St. Constantine and Helen church from being repossessed by its lander. KeepCalling's donation of $500 adds up to the efforts of the church to raise the necessary money and return the loan.
The $500 donation was part of a fundraising event that took place on September 21st for the second year in a row. The donation revolved around a tennis tournament and its impact influences the Romanian community in Atlanta, but also members from other neighboring ethnic groups, since St. Constantine and Helen church gathers around 99% Romanians and 1% other Eastern Europeans.
The orthodox community around St. Constantine and Helen church in Atlanta is an important one. It comprises hundreds of members at present, and is thus the center that brings together not only the Romanian community living in Atlanta, but also Moldavians and Serbians, who would otherwise not interact. The establishment is pretty active, organizing and hosting social and cultural events on regular basis.
The crisis behind the event dates back in 2009, when the church was forced into bankruptcy. As a consequence, the building is now on the verge of being repossessed by its lander.
The $500 donation from KeepCalling lines up with its social program of supporting the local community through charitable actions. The telecommunication company, set up in Atlanta in 2002, chose to support the Romanian community in this area and reduce the risk the orthodox church is exposed to, including the dissipation of the regular meetings of the Romanian community.
KeepCalling's recent support of immigrant communities is part of the company business model. Not only is the company dealing in low-cost and high-quality service for long-distance communication, but it also looks at other ways to assist ethnic groups worldwide. Plus, the Romanian community in Atlanta is one step closer to KeepCalling since the company has an office in Romania.
KeepCalling’s implication and efforts towards a sustainable society involve such organizations as Habitat for Humanity, Kiva Loans, Wikipedia, Red Cross Romania, Mosoj Yan, Ninos con Valor, World Vision Romania, Let's do it, Romania!, plus several educational institutions.
