JONESBORO, Ga., Nov. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Committed to giving back to its community, Chime Solutions held it's second annual 5K race to support homelessness in the area. The domestic-based customer-contact service provider partnered with The House of Dawn, Inc to donate all race proceeds.
The House of Dawn (HOD) is a 501 c (3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a stable and loving home for teenage young adult mothers and their children under adult supervision. For more than ten years, it has provided young ladies with educational opportunities and the life training skills that they need to become independent, self-supporting women. HOD provides a safe and home-like environment for teenage mothers and their children who were previously homeless or in foster care as well as transitional living for the young families up to age 23.
The official race route started and finished in Lee Street Park. Attendees were supported by volunteer cheerleaders, a live DJ and local vendors. All participants received a race backpack filled by event sponsors and a complimentary event T-shirt. Local policemen and first responders were on site to assist race participants along the route.
"We started this race last year in hopes of giving back to the community that Chime Solutions is in," explained Chief of Staff, Lauren Wilson. "We are excited to be able to exceed our fundraising goal again this year and help those who are homeless."
More than 150 pairs of gently-worn shoes were also collected to donate to Kicks 4 the City, a charitable program committed to providing shoes for homeless communities within select cities across the U.S. and worldwide.
"Partnering with Chime was a great way to kick off this year's shoe drive," said Atlanta team lead, Tony Mitchell. "Our goal is to collect more than 3,000 pairs of shoes and we are well on our way. Shoes can continue to be donated to Chime until November 15th."
Race sponsors included SCR Consulting, LLC, Cousins Maine Lobster, Kaiser Permanente, The Gathering Spot,, The Wilson Family, The Szlam Family, and The Joint Chiropractic. J Hallen and Associates assisted Chime with connecting its resources to the community needs.
Just a few months ago, Chime Solutions added over 1,000 new jobs to the county as well. It continues to expand and give back, expressing a passion for people. Wilson said that they also plan to continue the giving by providing 200 employees with full thanksgiving dinners this month.
