Rather than giving clients a standard holiday gift, Beltmann Relocation Group is fulfilling the holiday wish lists of more than 100 homeless children in the greater Atlanta area through a generous donation of more than $10,000 ($100 per child) to Children’s Restoration Network.  Beltmann employees shopped, wrapped, sorted, labeled and provided the transportation of the new clothing and toys which will be distributed this Saturday.   As part of its contribution, Beltmann is also hosting Saturday’s holiday party for 150 guests at Rainbow Village Shelter in Duluth, Ga.  Additionally, Beltmann is donating 42” flat-screen TVs and a Blu-Ray DVD player to Mother’s Making a Change, a residential outpatient treatment shelter for women facing substance abuse issues.

“We’ve participated with this charity in this past, but this year believed it would benefit everyone if we stepped up our contribution,” explained Beltmann Relocation Group’s President Marc Van Kley, who formerly served on the board of Children’s Restoration Network (CRN) in Atlanta.   “Fruit baskets are always nice, but we wanted to make a significant contribution to helping the homeless among us – especially at this meaningful time of year.”  The contribution is made on behalf of our customers and, truthfully, it’s really their contribution as it is they who make it possible.”

According to Jim Cox, President at CRN, “We are honored and very much appreciate Beltmann’s generous involvement.  Because of their gifts, many children will have a very different kind of Christmas this year.”
