Give & Go
Monday, March 5th
Help us make our mark and give back to those in need on Give and Go Day, a community driven initiative benefiting Atlanta Mission Shelters. This spring, Atlanta United is joining forces with Leesa One-Ten to donate 227 mattresses to Atlanta Mission’s Women’s & Children’s Shelter “My Sister’s House” thanks to your Goalkeeper, Brad Guzan. Guzan’s dedication to the Atlanta community led him to reach out to Leesa to support the homeless and we are encouraging you to complete the day of giving by donating items to help give these women a fresh start.
Items can be dropped off at the donation bins at the Atlantic Station Team Store between Monday, February 26 - Sunday, March 4 during store hours as well as our viewing party locations in Saturday, March 3.
High-need items: Hair Product (gel, moose, foam), Dove Body Wash and/or Dove Soap, Depends Adult Diapers, Women’s Underwear, Clorox Wipes, Ponchos and/or Umbrellas
