As we continue to live at a distance, Pace is committed to supporting individuals and groups impacted by the pandemic. The ICGL team has created a community engagement section on Pace Health, where Pace students, faculty and families can find engagement opportunities.

Atlanta Community Food Bank: Pace Athletics donated excess snacks and drinks from its concession stands to support those facing food insecurity during COVID-19. Their contributions are part of the more than 4 million pounds of food that the organization is donating during the month of May.

Bloom Closet: The Bloom Community Engagement Club thanks the Pace families who donated to its spring clothing drive, which filled two large U-Haul trucks to the brim. All donations are now at Bloom Closet helping foster families in need. 

Atlanta Mission & First Presbyterian Church: Sophomore Benjamin Chern and junior Jonny Sundermeier are bringing awareness to the needs of those experiencing homelessness. Consider donating one or more of the following items to Atlanta Mission and First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta’s Community Ministry: gently used or new backpacks and books for school-aged children; gently used sneakers (sizes 9-13); personal hygiene products; sunblock lotion; ponchos; canned goods; dry foods; 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 parking lot, located at 1328 Peachtree Street NE. To drop off at an earlier date or help receive donations during the drive, contact benjamin.chern22@paceacademy.org or jonny.sundermeier21@paceacademy.org.
