Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 01, 2016
On December 18, 2015, Safety Net Recovery donated a check for $1,000 to New Beginnings, a local food bank. This donation was used to augment their regular weekly food donations and help feed hundreds of locals. In addition, they donated furniture to help furnish several transitional homes through Essence of Hope in order to provide warmth and comfort to those in need.
Safety Net Recovery has helped keep hundreds of locals fed every week for the last two years through their partnership with New Beginnings. Each week, Safety Net Recovery’s clients load up a truck full of food for the pantry, which keeps 70 to 100 families fed for the entire week.
Essence of Hope provides transitional housing and supportive services to those suffering from addiction, mental illness, homelessness or abuse. Safety Net Recovery recently donated 30 mattresses, 120 sets of linens and several sofas, dishes, bedroom sets and more in order to furnish numerous houses and allow those in need a warm, safe place to reside while they heal.
“We believe in leading by example,” said Taylor Hagin, co-owner of Safety Net Recovery. “Through helping the community, we’re able to teach our clients what it means to be productive members of society. This joy in helping others shows clients that there is more to life than drugs or alcohol and that they have the ability to greatly impact the world around them.”
Though these contributions qualify for a tax break, Safety Net Recovery will not be reporting the donations to the Internal Revenue Service—they are solely meant to make a difference in the community and allow their clients to learn and grow through helping others.
