Congratulations to the 2016 IMPACT Awards Winners:


PROJECT IMPACT AWARD

The Home Depot

The Home Depot is honored for its Introduction to Tools training for youth, ages 11 to 18. In 2015, The Home Depot was asked to provide volunteers for a pilot training at the Tool Training Center at the Atlanta Community ToolBank to introduce and train at-risk youth in basic tool skills . This was done by building a table, which was eventually distributed to military veterans and their families through another nonprofit’s furniture donation program. The pilot project, completed with the support of the Atlanta Community ToolBank, was a test for similar programs that could become ongoing training for hundreds of other youth in metro Atlanta. Today the training is being provided to 180 youth from the City of Atlanta’s Park and Recreation Department through their Summer Camp Program and being used with at-risk youth from CHRIS Kids in a south Atlanta neighborhood. 


SKILLS-BASED VOLUNTEERISM IMPACT AWARD

Troutman Sanders

Troutman Sanders is honored for its partnership with Atlanta Legal Aid Society to assist veterans in the Palliative Care Unit of the Atlanta VA Hospital with civil legal needs, including end-of-life planning documents such as wills, guardianships and more. Since January 2015, volunteer attorneys and paralegals have met with 60 veterans.

 

BUSINESS-TO-BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP AWARD

 The Immigration Working Group, a collaborative effort including Alston + Bird, King & Spalding, Kilpatrick Townsend, Sutherland and Troutman Sanders along with many other partners.

This group was initially formed to help meet the growing need for legal services to assist unaccompanied immigrant children entering the U.S., but its responsibilities have grown to provide pro bono services to children, victims of raids, detention, deportation and the court case loads. Five law firms and 13 other entities are working to help solve a community challenge affecting an estimated one million residents in the state of Georgia. One of the IWG’s first outcomes was being able to bring KIND, a nonprofit that focuses their work on immigrant children, to Georgia.

 

BUSINESS-TO-NONPROFIT PARTNERSHIP AWARD

 Turner and 21st Century Leaders

Turner and 21st Century Leaders are awarded for their partnership in a week-long program for 75 high-school students who are interested in careers in the broadcasting industry. The free-to-students program, launched in 2006, invites participants to live in nearby dorms and travel to Turner offices each day for workshops, panel discussions, networking opportunities and more. Since the program’s inception, more than 1,000 students have participated.


IMPACT CORPORATE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM OF THE YEAR AWARD (<999 EMPLOYEES)

King & Spalding

King & Spalding formalized its community program in 1994. Under the leadership of volunteer councils, all King & Spalding offices participate in community and pro bono activities. Since 2010, the company has invested 11,800 hours through 395 community service projects and provided 93,000 hours of pro bono service to low-income individuals, nonprofits and community causes in Atlanta.

 

IMPACT CORPORATE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM OF THE YEAR AWARD (1000+ EMPLOYEES)

Bank of America

At Bank of America, employees are given two hours of paid time per week to volunteer. Forty-nine percent of the company’s Atlanta employees—including senior leaders—participate in volunteer activities . In 2015, Bank of America had more than 48,000 volunteer hours submitted by employees to its internal tracking system, executed 277 volunteer events and served 749 nonprofit organizations.
