15 Years of Changing Lives & Ending Homelessness:
Based on recommendations from health officials and local government surrounding the growing concerns around COVID-19, our team has made the difficult decision to postpone our Drink Beer Do Good™ event scheduled for Saturday, April 18.
This choice was made based on our continued efforts to ensure the well-being of staff, partners, and our greater community. We are closely monitoring the situation and working to determine a possible date for rescheduling this annual volunteer appreciation event.
In the interim, we want to acknowledge and thank our sponsor Bold Monk Brewing Company and the Brewed to Serve restaurant group for their continued support of Gateway Center and our fight to support those experiencing homelessness.
We appreciate your understanding of our decision to postpone this event. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Outstanding Corporate Volunteer
Gateway Center’s Corporate Volunteer Award is a partnership made in hog heaven – literally! Jim’ N Nick’s and Fox Brothers Barbecue have served a pre-Thanksgiving meal to people experiencing homelessness for 6 years. What began with 100 meals at the corner of Peachtree and Pine has now expanded to over 1,000 meals served in Gateway Center’s Client Engagement Center. In addition to this partnership, both restaurants have also assisted with Gateway Center’s culinary program and in providing additional gifts-in-kind throughout the year.
Outstanding Individual Volunteer
Gateway Center’s Outstanding Individual Volunteer is Charles Storne. For over 30 years Charles has spent his Saturday mornings preparing a hot breakfast in Gateway Center’s residential program. In 2018, he expanded locations to include Gateway Center’s low barrier program at The Evolution Center. His willing hand and heart felt commitment also motivates his 30+ team of volunteers that serve faithfully each week.
Gateway Center is excited to honor these corporate and individual volunteers who nourish our friends experiencing homelessness both emotionally and physically!
