Metro Atlanta Red Cross - Emergency Blood Drive
In consultation with the Mayor’s office, Pace has partnered with the Metro Atlanta Red Cross for a series of emergency blood drives in response to thousands of cancelled drives across the nation. Given increased pressure on our healthcare industry, these donations provide critical blood to patients in need.
In addition to our drive this past Friday, we are hosting drives on Friday, April 10, and Friday, April 17, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Appointments are available through the Red Cross website. Search for zip code 30327.
Local Area Hospitals - Letters of Encouragement
Many Atlanta hospitals and healthcare workers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak and are working longer hours, taking time away from family and friends to treat the patients most impacted by the virus. To support them in this difficult and dangerous work, our Lower and Middle School students are writing letters of support to nurses, doctors and first responders at Grady Healthcare, Emory St. Joseph’s, Piedmont Hospital and Northside Hospital. If you would like to participate in this effort, please contact us.
Meals on Wheels - Canned Drive
With many of our older community members confined to their residences, we are working with our partners at Meals of Wheels Atlanta (MOWA) to support efforts to scale up to handle a surge in requests across the city. This increased need among Atlantans has emptied the MOWA pantry, and the organization is building emergency pantry bags to distribute across the city.
Pace will serve as a food donation from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1. Please drop items in the designated collection bin in the Lower School carpool loop. Suggested donation items can be found here, under the food pantry section.
