Alongside these weekly happenings, the center’s volunteers engaged in various outreach activities, becoming a beacon of support for the greater Atlanta communities during the Covid pandemic. During the pandemic, the school volunteers undertook numerous community charity events which supported the needs of the most hard-hit groups in greater Atlanta. These included but were not limited to healthcare workers, seniors and low-income families, foster care facilities, shelters, and senior and veteran living communities.
As a result of these efforts, M.T.O. Atlanta has been awarded several awards and proclamations by the local government. These include the Georgia House of Representative Citation letter, the Fulton County Salute to Citizens Award, and Georgia State Capital’s recognition in observance of World Water Day.
The center’s efforts continue today and are based on the needs of the greater Atlanta communities. These efforts include donations of essential supplies (food, hygiene, school supplies, PPE, etc.), mental health resources, and environmental sustainability gatherings and efforts.
