As we continue to live life at a distance, many in the Pace community want to support the individuals and groups most impacted by the pandemic. The ICGL has remained in contact with its community engagement partners to provide support as they adapt to the ever-changing situation, and the team has created a community engagement section on Pace Health, where Pace students, faculty and families can find engagement opportunities.

In addition, sophomore Benjamin Chern and junior Jonny Sundermeier are leading an effort to bring awareness to the needs of those experiencing homelessness. Make a difference by helping Atlanta Mission and First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta’s Community Ministry, which provide free meals, MARTA cards, groceries and many other services to this population.

Please consider donating gently used or new backpacks and books for school-aged children; gently used sneakers (sizes 9-13); personal hygiene products (shampoo, soap, deodorant, lip balm); sunblock lotion; rain ponchos; canned goods (soup, tuna and vegetables); dry foods (rice, beans, cereal); salt and pepper; disposable plates, bowls, cutlery and napkins; individually packaged snacks and juice boxes; gift cards to Kroger, Walmart or Publix. 

Donate items May 28-30 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta’s parking lot, located at 1328 Peachtree Street NE. To drop off at an earlier date or help receive donations during the drive, please email benjamin.chern22@paceacademy.org or jonny.sundermeier21@paceacademy.org.
