Welcome to The ATL Pledge

ATL, Thank You, for showing up for our community by taking the ATL Pledge.

The COVID-19 pandemic is tremendous and its effects have been overwhelming. Our neighbors are struggling, and much remains uncertain. One thing is clear: ATL is a caring and capable community, and true "southern hospitality" means collectively taking care of one other. 

Many organizations are adapting their programs and services to respond to the community's evolving needs. With the ATL Pledge, we have zeroed in on two Atlanta-based nonprofit organizations, both with "boots on the ground," who are actively impacting those in immediate need across our community.

Hope Thru Soap serves the city's homeless and unsheltered friends. During this pandemic, diminished food resources and basic hygiene access are of critical concern.

Hope Thru Soap addresses these basic human needs through mobile outreach, delivering resources directly to our less fortunate neighbors who are suffering from the abrupt and indefinite halt to many social service programs.

Atlanta Community Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in the Southeast. Given the substantial impact of social distancing measures, the Atlanta Community Food Bank is working to provide food assistance to their existing network, as well as providing emergency relief for an increasing number of families and seniors facing hardship.

ATL has a rich history of social activism and responsibility. We are in this together. Tomorrow starts today, and our community will emerge from this crisis together. Thank you for contributing to the ATL Pledge.

Hope Thru Soap

Since 2016, Hope thru Soap has served the City of Atlanta’s homeless and less fortunate friends. They bring a mobile block party each week providing showers, haircuts, clothing and hot meals. During the COVID-19 crisis, Hope thru Soap has adjusted their efforts and has continued serving the unsheltered by providing Hope Bags filled with a week’s worth of protein foods, snacks and waters. Each bag also contains hygiene items, hand sanitizer and educational materials around the virus with information on how those living on the streets can protect themselves. They are also delivering hot meals.

During this health crisis, food security and basic hygiene access is a large concern for Atlanta’s less fortunate. Everyone deserves dignity and the human right to food and hygiene. Hope thru Soap is providing this. But they cannot do it alone. They need your support.

Atlanta Community Food Bank

The Atlanta Community Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in the Southeast serving more than 784,000 people each year.  In a region where one in seven people is struggling with food insecurity, they work with close to 700 nonprofit partners—including food pantries, community kitchens, childcare centers, night shelters and senior centers—to distribute over 60 million meals to people in 29 counties across metro Atlanta and north Georgia.

 With each day, the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic inflict more pain across our community. Schools across the state are closed, restaurants and other businesses are shuttered and countless workers face the reality of layoffs, furloughs and missed paychecks.  In this rapidly evolving environment, the Atlanta Community Food Bank is working to provide food assistance, both to their existing network of food providers, as well as emergency relief for families and seniors.  For every dollar donated, the Food Bank can provide up to four meals!
