2017 Q3 Small Acts of Charity
Grant Amount: $4,500
Grant Purpose: to fund transportation costs related to the 2017 Homeless Requiem which took place on November 1, 2017. The Cathedral’s Homeless Requiem and Dinner remembers those who have died while homeless in Atlanta; the event offers hospitality to and builds bridges with neighbors who are homeless and the organizations who serve them. With recent changes regarding the Peachtree-Pine shelter in downtown Atlanta, which previously funded transportation, ECF’s funding provided bus transportation to the Cathedral’s homeless guests, creating an opportunity for even more organizations to partner with the Cathedral than in years past.
