Every year, the Atlanta Apartment Association (AAA) and its members coordinate the Food-a-Thon, the annual community service project of the AAA. Participating apartment communities across the city collect food items to be donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank to help the thousands of Atlantans who find themselves in need. This year’s goal is a whopping 1.3 million pounds of food to be donated, on average about 14,000 food items or $2,800 per participating apartment community. The Food-a-Thon is the biggest contribution to the Atlanta Community Food Bank all year.
The AAA will host the annual Can Can Ball, a black-tie optional event at the downtown Atlanta Sheraton, on Friday, August 26, a fundraiser for the Food-a-Thon with music, dancing, food, and a silent auction. The drive ends on October 21 with a parade and block party for the participants.
