In Georgia, it's common to see Atlanta Falcon clothing and sports memorabilia everywhere. But what a lot of people don't see when they're traveling to games is the neighborhood just west of the stadium - where one of Atlanta's poorest and most crime-ridden areas in the nation dwell.
It's hard to imagine, but nearly 40% of the residents in the 30314 neighborhoods live below the federal poverty level. This one zip code accounts for an astonishing 60% of all the murders in Atlanta and why the "FBI considers the 1300 block of 30314 the 5th most violent block in the entire United States."
Statistics like these need to change and the non-profit City of Refuge has made it their mission to do just that. The City of Refuge wants to transform and revitalize the city of Atlanta and have a pathway to do it. The staff, volunteers, and residents are witnessing miracles, every day, of positive change beginning to take root around Vine City, English Avenue, and Washington Park neighborhoods.
Giv360 encourages you to be a part of this great organization. By choosing City of Refuge as your charity to support, every time you visit a participating Giv360 merchant, you'll be sending up to 5% of your purchase to the City of Refuge's cause. Your contributions can make an impact and help provide on-campus interventions and programs that are providing solutions with dignity.
