In March 2019, ABAC partnered with Trees Atlanta for a second time to plant trees in the East Lake Community. Atlanta is known as the “City in the Forest”, and trees are fundamental to our city’s well-being and long-term sustainability. Trees Atlanta planted about 4,000 trees this year, and it was very fulfilling for us to get the opportunity to contribute to such a cause for a second time. We even got the chance to personalize the trees we planted by getting to name them individually. It’s always a great time to give back to the Atlanta community by making the environment a more sustainable place to live!

In Spring 2018, the Atlanta Broadcast Advertising Club (ABAC) continued its dedication to giving back and connecting the Atlanta community by partnering with Trees Atlanta. We contributed to the beautification of our city by becoming eco-friendly with the great outdoors! This included mulching trees in order to provide them the best chance of thriving in the extreme hot and cold temperatures that Atlanta faces throughout the year. Over the past 30 years, Trees Atlanta has placed more than 113,000 trees across the city, and we were proud to roll up our sleeves, get our hands dirty, and contribute to making our community a better place to live.

Gifts can DOUBLE to feed 2X as many children and families!
Children — whose parents depended on school lunches to ensure they were adequately nourished — will experience food insecurity this summer. But thanks to the generosity of anonymous friends, your gift to the Atlanta Community Food Bank can be matched up to $100,000.


Every $1 you give can help provide enough food for 6 meals to our neighbors experiencing hunger this summer.

Supporting families since 1974
After recognizing the need to support the whole family when a child is seriously ill or injured, our first Ronald McDonald House opened in Philadelphia, PA, USA, in 1974. That was the beginning of our role as a unique charity dedicated to caring for families with children who are ill or injured. Our programs and services address the essential needs of families around the world – all along their child’s healthcare journey – so they can focus on the health and well-being of their child.

The death of a parent often leads to other losses, too, such as having to move, switch schools, or live with a different parent. Because the family’s financial situation may change if the deceased parent worked, teens may have to get a job to help support the family or watch younger siblings. If the parents were together at the time of death or maintained a strong bond after ending their relationship, the surviving parent may also be grieving deeply, which can impact their ability to support their children.


At the Joy Mission we cannot completely solve these, but we can help fund counseling services and find opportunities to create JOY for these kids. In doing both of these we believe we will help these children to manifest a more positive outlook even on the darkest days and create an awareness of uncovering joy each and every day.
