As if anyone needed another reason to support Atlanta’s Home Team, this year’s regular season success for the Atlanta Braves will also mean a second chance for many families in Georgia.
Gas South’s “Bring the Heat” campaign, has pledged to donate $50 to The Salvation Army Project Share program for each strikeout recorded by an Atlanta Braves pitcher this season.
The pitching staff has registered nearly 1,200 strikeouts thus far, according to Gas South officials, to raise the Project SHARE donation tally to more than $58,000.
Atlanta Braves President John Schuerholz acknowledged the benefits of “Bring the Heat” to The Salvation Army. “Our goal is to put together the best pitching staff that will help our ball club win games. To have their success tied to this great cause is a huge bonus for the team and the Salvation Army, and we are proud to partner with Gas South in giving back to the community so generously.”
It is through the generosity and concern of corporate partners, like Gas South, that we at The Salvation Army are able to address the growing needs of Georgia families in crisis.
Their support is especially meaningful in the current economic environment, which has presented new challenges for local families and for our resources.
Donations to Project SHARE are contributions to “homeless prevention” in Georgia for families who, in many instances, are a utility bill away from homelessness, and a donation away from being in a better place in their lives — financially and otherwise.
