Help Fayette Senior Services Provide Holiday Meals to Homebound Seniors

Monday, December 8th, 2014

Fayette Senior Services provides Meals on Wheels to local homebound seniors, but the standard funding only covers the cost of weekday, non-holiday meals.

Project Love helps bridge that gap. Help over 250 seniors experience the love of the community as well as the comfort and joy of having a nutritious meal on holidays throughout the year. Donations also provide doctor-prescribed Ensure® dietary supplements, as well as additional “shelf meals” – non-refrigerated meals that can be kept on the shelf in the event of an emergency.

Donation forms and additional information can be found at www.fayss.org and at Fayette Senior Services Life Enrichment Center, 4 Center Drive in Fayetteville or 203 McIntosh Trail in Peachtree City.

Checks should be made payable to Fayette Senior Services. Credit cards accepted

ARC Seeks Millennials for New Advisory Committee

Friday, December 5th, 2014

The Atlanta Regional Commission is actively seeking individuals from throughout the 10-county Atlanta region who are 18-38 years old, with a desire to help shape the future of the region.  Applicants will be considered for inclusion in ARC’s newly created Millennial Advisory Committee through December 19.

The Committee is being led by two of ARC’s youngest board members, Brant Aden PE, LEED GA and Amol Naik.  Mr. Aden is a Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Foresite Group, Inc, a firm focused on civil engineering, landscape architecture, structural engineering, telecommunications, transportation and other consulting services.  He joined ARC’s Board in 2013 and represents Citizen District 10, which includes portions of DeKalb and Gwinnett counties. Mr. Naik is the Public Policy and Government Relations Senior Counsel at Google for the Southeastern United States. Prior to attending law school, Amol was a journalist whose work included a stint at the Washington D.C. bureau of an international daily newspaper. He joined the Board of ARC in 2014 and represents Citizen District 4, which includes portions of Atlanta and Fulton County.

The leadership of the ARC Board felt compelled to actively engage this age cohort as recent research conducted by C&M/Civic Strategies for ARC indicates that young people between the ages of 18-35, are widely regarded as critical to the region’s future. Millennials are thought to represent the next generation of residents who will live and work in the Atlanta region, shaping and leading it for the next 30 to 40 years.  This generation represents 25 percent of the population of metro Atlanta.  The full report on Millennials in the Atlanta region, along with the application, can be found at millennials.atlantaregional.com.
