Local families visit CAC’s south Sandy Springs location during the Day in the Park community event on May 7, 2022.

Hundreds of neighbors attended ‘A Day in the Park’ community event at CAC’s new south Sandy Springs location, jointly hosted by CAC, LaAmistad, Los Niños Primero, and Solidarity Sandy Springs. CAC’s new branch features a self-choice food pantry and offers financial assistance interviews on an appointment basis.

From 3:00pm to 5:00pm, guests explored the nonprofit’s new offices while enjoying food, drink, music, and giveaways. CAC staff and board members gave away drinks, Upscale Thrift coupons, and information about upcoming programs. Representatives from the City of Sandy Springs and the Sandy Springs Fire Department were in attendance, making connections with community members. Other nonprofits provided tacos, drinks, clothing, and hired a mariachi band, turning the open house into a true community party. See below for pictures of the event.
