We are proud to announce that Childs Company will serve as a primary sponsor of the Corners Outreach Annual Banquet, Evening With a Purpose, which will be held on Thursday October 28th at 6pm at the Atlanta Athletic Club. Founded by our friend and client Larry Campbell, Corners Outreach is on the cutting edge of non-profit work. Through data driven and outcomes based educational and economic development programs Corners is helping those who need it most—the poor and vulnerable families in our community.
Corners Academy currently partners with nine Title I schools by offering after school tutoring and summer camps for elementary school students, teen programs, early learning programs and parent workshops in multiple locations. Corners seeks to improve educational outcomes by focusing on the students in our communities who are most likely to drop out of school without intervention.
In order to better serve the whole family, Corners Industries was created to provide job opportunities and a living wage to the parents of the families we serve while generating meaningful economic development in our communities. Corners Industries’ landscaping and lawn care business has employed dozens of working parents and paid over $1 million in working wages to those parents. In addition, Corners Industries donates 10% of its revenue to fund tutoring through Corners Academy.
We encourage anyone who is interested to learn more by visiting the Corners Outreach website or especially by attending the annual banquet. Dinner will accompany the program and you’ll have a chance to bid on a host of fabulous items, vacation packages, etc. through both a silent and live auction. You can register for this special event at www.cornersoutreach.org.
