Matlock celebrates the Holidays by Volunteering at the Atlanta Children’s Shelter
The team at Matlock was brimming with holiday cheer as we prepared for the gift giveaway for tots through teens at the Atlanta Children’s Shelter. As a member of the board for the shelter, Matlock’s Brand Group Director & Vice President Pamela Bishop organized a day for the agency to work with the shelter to transform the their gym facility into a winter wonderland boutique where parents would have the opportunity to come through and “shop” for gifts for their children. The shelter, created to guide homeless families to independence had seen a dramatic increase in need, which meant more volunteers than ever were needed to help make Christmas a magical day for the families. Besides creating the feeling of Christmas throughout the gymnasium, the team also spent the day volunteering in the shelter’s daycare; rocking babies, playing tag, and singing nursery songs. The staff at the daycare encouraged the Matlock team to spread the word that there is always a need for volunteers in the shelter, especially the daycare.
