Paran Homes Launches Initiative to Help Atlanta Families in Need

Regional Builder to Host HomeAid Essentials Drive at Seven Atlanta Communities and Corporate Office April 29 through May 7, 2019

Paran Homes is proud to team up with the amazing folks at HomeAid Atlanta to provide much-needed relief to homeless babies, toddlers and their moms in time for Mother’s Day. Marking its 18th year, the Essentials Drive is HomeAid’s annual community-wide drive to collect “essentials” such as diapers, baby wipes, baby food and formula for families in need. Held annually since 2002, the Essentials Drive has collected over a million critical baby items and has assisted hundreds of moms and babies in the metro Atlanta area. From all of us here at Paran Homes, we ask you to dig deep, go shopping, and then drop off your donations at the sales office or model home in one of seven communities through Metro Atlanta between April 29-May 7, 2019. We will also be accepting donations at our Corporate Office.

“Families come in all shapes and sizes, from a wide variety of backgrounds, with different sets of needs,” said Whit Marshall, CEO of Paran Homes. “Families are at the heart of everything we do at Paran Homes. Many of our team members have families of their own. It pains us all to think that there are mothers out there who aren’t sure where their baby’s next meal is coming from or where they might be sleeping that night. Being given basic, but sometimes costly essentials like diapers and formula could go a long way in making Mother’s Day a little happiers for homeless families in need throughout the Metro Atlanta community. We are truly honored to partner with HomeAid Atlanta on this effort.”
