Pantry: 86 Mount Vernon Highway NW, Sandy Springs, GA 30328
For over four years, The Packaged Good (TPG) taught children to “do good” with a mission to help shape the next generation of philanthropists. During that time, thousands of children came through its doors to create care packages and to learn the impact their efforts would have on those in need. Thank you for being a part of those efforts.
TPG was forced to halt in-person programming after the pandemic hit. Since that time, it hosted on-line experiences that featured local heroes and collaborated with local charities to provide care packages for those in need. Knowing there is an emergency assistance need in our community, the Board of Directors voted to dissolve The Packaged Good corporation and move its programming as part of Solidarity Sandy Springs. While a difficult decision, this will enable TPG to continue its mission while helping to meet the critical needs our community is now facing.
Solidarity Sandy Springs opened its doors initially as a food pantry in response to the pandemic in March 2020. To date, it has provided food to over 60,000 people who otherwise would go without. While it began as a food pantry, Solidarity Sandy Springs has now expanded to provide additional resources to those in need in our community. Individuals of all ages and abilities have volunteered in person or at home to help deliver the impact Solidarity Sandy Springs has had in such a short time. Through The Packaged Good program under Solidarity Sandy Springs, families will continue to have the opportunity to make care packages for those in need, either in person or at home.
On behalf of The Packaged Good Board of Directors, we thank you for your past support. We could not have accomplished all we did without you, our loyal donors and volunteers. We are truly grateful for Sally Mundell and her family who created this wonderful opportunity for our community in memory of her husband, Grover. We hope you will follow us to our new home. To learn more, visit Solidarity Sandy Springs and help us continue to create the next generation of Do-Gooders.
