An army of 60 AT&T Believe Louisville volunteers brought so much energy and elbow grease to St. Vincent de Paul Louisville today in support of the new Youth Homeless Demonstration Project (YHDP) launching in December. Volunteers painted walls, baby proofed rooms, assembled beds and welcome kits, and sanded and painted rocking chairs.
AT&T Believe Louisville also presented St. Vincent de Paul Louisville with $25,000 to fund the new program. “This gift from AT&T will make a huge difference to so many young adults and families,” said Ed Wnorowski, Executive Director of St. Vincent de Paul Louisville. The Coalition for the Homeless will also receive $25,000 to support their work on the project.
“With support from our more than 900 Louisville area employees, we believe we can make a meaningful difference in our community by focusing our resources on local challenges like homelessness here in Louisville,” said AT&T Kentucky President Hood Harris. “We’re passionate about addressing this problem and by coming together as a company and community to focus on a common cause, we hope we can make a positive impact.”
