Every year, Gratus team members organize and participate in quarterly volunteer events. After each event, the team completes a survey and votes to determine which one had the biggest impact on the Gratus team and the community. In 2017, Gratus hosted an event for Make-A-Wish®, volunteered on the farm at Camp Twin Lakes, planned a carnival for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta℠ Scottish Rite Hospital, and helped families Christmas shop at MUST Ministries Marietta. The events helped provide resources to those in need and aimed to make a difference. Although all four events were successful, the Gratus team voted and decided the event at MUST Ministries Cobb Toy Shop made the greatest impact overall.
MUST Ministries Donation
In March, a few team members visited MUST Ministries Marietta to deliver a donation acknowledging the impact of their event. The donation will go towards the services MUST Ministries provides including groceries, job training, housing options, and meals. Donations to MUST Ministries help 30,000+ clients they serve each year. For 47 years, MUST Ministries has worked to fulfill their vision of connecting people who have a desire to help with those who need it most.
