Families in need in the Atlanta area received the supplies over the weekend. In collaboration with Goodr, Garner Trial Attorneys, Nouveaux and Kandi Care held the giveaway at the Jefferson Park Recreation Center in East Point.
Jasmine Crowe, Goodr CEO, said in a statement that single-parent families are vulnerable in their communities, and Goodr was honored to work with Burruss and her foundation.
“Single-parent families are a uniquely vulnerable part of our communities,” Crowe stated. “Even two-income households are struggling to provide anything above basic necessities right now so events like this are essential. Goodr is honored to partner with Kandi Cares again on such a vital initiative.”
