VININGS, GA., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS sales associates joined in the 2009 back to school shopping season – purchasing new backpacks and school supplies for the children in the care of the Atlanta Union Mission For Women And Children. The agents met their goal of providing a total of 20 book-bags stuffed with a variety of supplies.


“It is very important for me to give back to the community where I live, work and play,” said Brenda Allred, Crye-Leike Vinings Managing Broker. “Adopting the Atlanta Union Mission for Women and Children has given us that opportunity.”


More than 30 Realtors contributed to the donation of back to school essentials from the Crye-leike Vinings, Georgia branch office located at 4691 S. Atlanta Road Suite 100 in Smyrna, Georgia.


“We placed a school supply collection cabinet in our main lobby and asked our Realtors to do what they could to fill it,” said Brenda.  “It warms my heart to see the outpouring of donations and I know it is making a huge difference in the lives of the children at the Atlanta Union Mission who are starting school with new school supplies like every other child.”


The Atlanta Union Mission was established in 1938 as a refuge for hungry individuals displaced by the Great Depression. Over the years, the Mission has grown from a single shelter in downtown Atlanta to six facilities, which provide emergency food and shelter, residential recovery programs and transitional housing to as many as 1,144 homeless and addicted men and women, and their children.


For the associates at Crye-Leike Vinings this was not the first time they reached out to lend a hand to the women and children at the mission.  During the past holiday season agents provided several families staying at the shelter with gifts of food and toys.


As she has been doing with her real estate clients for more than two decades, Brenda says the personal approach she takes in her business is the same approach she takes when it comes to her community service.


“We’re thrilled to be able to support the Atlanta Union Mission so they can continue to help save lives and ease the day to day struggle that so many families find themselves in,” said Brenda.  “My goal as a Realtor and a concerned member of the community is to help rebuild lives and help to create strong families and even stronger communities.”
