Empower the future. ‘ The far-reaching effects of the COVID-19 pandemic mean that financial recovery will take time at the corporate and household level. Employees struggle to meet demands at home and at work, but we can help by giving their employers a way to meet those needs. “

As part of a one-year celebration of this anniversary, Purchasing Power will continue its long history of giving back to the community by making monetary donations to 20 employee-selected Atlanta-area nonprofits. Local organizations such as Junior Achievement of Georgia, the Atlanta Community Food Bank, the Marine Toys for Tots, and PAWS Atlanta are just a few of the nonprofit charities that will receive special funding from Purchasing Power this year.

“Our employees have consistently donated over 3,000 volunteer hours each year which have supported a wide variety of targeted community projects,” said Racquel roberts, director of human resources at Purchasing Power. “From home renovations with Habitat for Humanity to serving meals at Open Hand Atlanta, our team has shared their skills and workforce to generously help others throughout our 20 year history.
