BLESS Weekend is a 3 day community outreach event that has grown leaps and bounds since its inception in 2016. Over 350 families were served through this event in April 2018. With the central location taking place at the Allatoona Resource Center, projects were spread across many locations in Bartow County. Families at the ARC participated in family fun activities and received FREE clothing, food and books from our partners at the Street Store, Bookmobile and Red Door Food Pantry. Free healthcare screenings were available from many local businesses and medical organizations.
Our very own BLESS General Store handed out personal hygiene and home cleaning products to all those in attendance. The BLESS Build team worked on projects in the Allatoona Community ranging from plumbing repairs, roof replacements and deck repairs. Hundreds of volunteers served long hours cleaning up trash and debris in the neighborhoods and helping with monthly tasks in the Allatoona Community Garden.
In addition, many of our partner churches and organizations implemented their own projects around the community. These projects ranged from additional home improvement efforts, painting for one of our community non-profits, packing food and aid, and other tasks.
We have been so blessed to have had partners in the past such as Will2Way Foundation, Comcast and RCI Waste Solutions. How can we partner with your business or organization for BLESS Weekend 2019?
