The MARTA Employees' Charity Club brought the joy of the season to 5,000 area children during its annual Holiday Shop on Thursday, December 20th and Friday, December 21st.
Each year, the Charity Club works with the Federation of Charities and United Way to invite area families to select from thousands of holiday gifts. The shop included toys and bicycles.
In the 16-year history of the Holiday Shop, MARTA employees have given generously to serve more families each season. Throughout the year, community outreach efforts are coordinated by the Employees’ Charity Club. In 2012, employees donated $29,000 to the March of Dimes and pledged $675,000 to support over 400 charities.
