Assured Comfort Heating, Air & Plumbing, a home service company serving the greater Atlanta area, will host its Fostering Faith packing project on April 28.
Employees, families and friends of Assured Comfort will gather to collect essential goods and school supplies, donated both by the company and others, and fill hundreds of backpacks to be delivered to local foster children.
“We started this effort seven years ago with the idea to make our local foster children smile and feel loved, and our employees, friends and families donated more than 300 backpacks to the cause,” said Jerry Hall, owner of Assured Comfort Heating, Air & Plumbing. “We’re now providing more than 1,400 backpacks every year to foster children across five counties.”
Fostering Faith, founded in 2011 by Assured Comfort and becoming officially recognized as a 501c3 nonprofit organization in 2016, is dedicated to offering comfort, care and essentials to children living in foster care. Beginning with a focus on the holiday season, efforts have expanded to include spring and summer projects. Each year, founders and volunteers come together to fill hundreds of backpacks with toiletries, school supplies, toys and more for children in Douglas County and the neighboring communities.
