The Bird Gives Back

Did you know that Red Robin Group donates 1% of our commissions to organizations in our community? Here are some of the projects we’ve supported this year…

East Atlanta Kids Club

Not only do we make a quarterly donation to this wonderful organization, but our team also takes part in projects involving the children of the EAKC. Earlier this summer, you may have heard about our Birdhouse Project that spruced up a small park in the Ormewood Park neighborhood with a beautiful birdhouse art installation. If you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, you may want to take a quick drive (or walk) over to the intersection of E. Confederate Ave and Woodland Ave.

We’re also making our 4th quarter donation to the EAKC in support of their holiday programming and gift giving. During this time of year, it’s so important for kids to build happy memories and feel the love and joyful spirit that the holidays can bring. Red Robin Group team members have also committed to some holiday volunteer hours with the EAKC.

Child Sponsorship at the Guice School

Guice is an Easter Seals North Georgia early childhood school located right in the Ormewood Park neighborhood. This group “provides high-quality services to ensure that all children with disabilities or other special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.”

Last year, a mother of one of the boys attending Guice started a project to find sponsors for the 140 children living in poverty that attend the school. She had started noticing that a majority of the children were being dropped off at school in worn clothing with no winter coat to keep them warm. Many of those same children live in homes without a single book.

This year, Red Robin Group has decided to sponsor a child at the school. She is 20 months old and will now be receiving a baby doll, books and clothes to open on Christmas morning.

This goes without saying, but we are overjoyed at the opportunity to take part in these wonderful neighborhood projects.

Happy Holidays to all!
