'Unity in the Community' Dinner Feeds Nearly 200 People in Atlanta

The month of November was filled with giving for Genuine Academy. Members have volunteered weekly with four different schools to mentor select students, while also planning and hosting a dinner to feed the Atlanta community. It is evident that the Genuine Academy team has worked diligently to execute its mission. In doing so, this year’s ‘Unity in the Community’ dinner was a success! Individuals from all over the city came out to The St. John’s Church to enjoy a meal prepared by team members.

November 11, marked that day for the savory dinner and the turn out crowd was anything but small. As the patrons entered the dining hall, they were greeted with the soft tones of old school Christmas music and the smell of the mouth-watering meal prepared by the awesome Genuine Academy team. The meal consisted of several Thanksgiving favorites such as turkey, ham, macaroni and cheese, many beverage choices, and desserts! The dining hall was so full that founder Antonieus Davis had to run to the store and buy chicken after the turkey ran out. It was imperative to replenish the food so that to insure everyone was able to eat as much as they wanted. “Everyone was smiling ear to ear as they conversed with one another” one attendee said. “With all of the negative events happening around the world, it’s heartwarming to come together as a community and share a moment of peace and positivity…” another individual said. As we head deeper into the holiday season, Genuine Academy will continue to bless the Atlanta community with their annual “Genuine Academy Toy Drive”. The organization is continuously accepting monetary donations, which can be donated directly to the site, that are tax deductible and small unwrapped toy donations to sponsor this year’s toy drive. Additionally, you can also be in assistance by cleaning out your closet and providing Genuine Academy with coats, hats, gloves, and scarves to give to family’s that are need of staying warm in the winter weather.
