Friday, the Bomgar Care Network extended their helping hands to the Abba House thrift store in Dawsonville, Georgia. About 30 Bomgar employees based in the Atlanta area spent an afternoon sorting through donations and organizing and cleaning the store. From moving furniture and color-coding clothes, to dusting and putting books on shelves, the orange-clad Bomgar team served in whatever capacity needed for the day. In addition, Bomgar raised $1,725 to donate to the organization, which will cover just over 10% of their operational costs/scholarships for 3 months.
Abba House is a program that provides a safe place for addicted, abused or otherwise broken women to recover from difficult and troubling life situations. Choosing to go to Abba House involves committing to a 15 month, faith-based residential abuse and addiction recovery program, seeking to meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the program members. The curriculum aims to give both women and their children a second chance in life.
Last week’s project is part of a quarterly initiative of the Bomgar Care Network. Each quarter, a small group of Bomgar advocates identify and select a charity to support. Once chosen, Bomgar employees are given the chance to pitch in and lend a helping hand. Be on the lookout for the next project!
