Celebrating Educators

 We at ReNew search for amazing teachers who not only enjoy their jobs and love their students but who also 'Go The Extra Mile' in making sure each student is prepared and excited to learn. Our ‘Go The Extra Mile’ teachers are educators who are passionate about education and go the extra mile in making sure their students are equipped with the necessary tools to be successful in the classroom. Today we celebrated third grade teacher, Ms. Ernestra McBurrows of Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School in Atlanta, GA.

ReNew Atlanta | Back To School Festival

B2SF1

Over the past seven years we have partnered with Capital Gateway Apartments to host this community-wide event. One of our goals is to provide quality backpacks for students in grades pre-k-12. Each student receives one free 17'' backpack filled with loose leaf paper, pencils, spiral notebooks, composition notebooks, two-pocket folders, crayons and glue sticks. Another goal is to provide a completely free event for the family. We achieve this goal by providing free food for the family, free haircuts and braiding for the students, free health screens, games and prizes as well as a free mommy corner for mother's to be pampered! This year alone we served a total of 979 families and distributed 402 backpacks. To date we have served over 2,000 families!

Senior Mobile Pantry

Our participating seniors are receiving a monthly commodity food supplemental box. The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) works to improve the health of low-income elderly persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods.

Through our partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank we are able to distribute CSFP boxes to those who qualify. In addition to the CSFP box, we provide our seniors with an additional bag or box of food with non-perishable and perishable food items.

If you would like to apply for this program, please contact our food pantry at 404-549-3823 ext 224 or 404-850-2053.

In March of 2017 our community food pantry celebrated one year of service to the community! Through our partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank we are able to purchase food items, at a very low cost, to provide in-need families and individuals with needed food items. 

Every fourth Saturday of the month our community food pantry is open to the public from 11am-1pm. All clients must show ID, proof of residence and are required to complete an application. Every client will receive non-perishable and perishable food items, as available.

Clients can schedule appointments for food pick-up on Wednesdays between the hours of 5pm and 7pm and every 1st and 2nd Saturday from 11am-1pm.
