    VBA Donates to Food Drive

    The Vinings Business Association (VBA) is donating $500 to the annual Thanks for Giving food drive administered by the Center for Family Resources (CAVER) in Marietta, in recognition and support of their community event of collecting and distributing boxes of food to Cobb families during the Thanksgiving season.


    According to volunteer coordinator Alicia Ferguson at the CFR, “We believe in collecting and providing all the ingredients necessary for a family to make their own Thanksgiving
    meal at home, in a way that supports and honors their own family traditions.  Thanks for Giving does so much more than provide a meal. It provides a continuation of a family's holiday expectations and way of life.”


    Charles Rea, 2016 president of the VBA said, “We realize that Thanksgiving week can be even more financially stressful when students are home from school for more than just the
    holiday meal. Through participation in the annual Thanks for Giving food drive, our generous community captures the true spirit of Thanksgiving.”

    Speaking of the Braves, the Vinings Business Association is welcoming the
    [Atlanta Braves]team’s move nearby.


    “The VBA is the only business association in the same zip code as the new
    SunTrust Park, so we embrace the Atlanta Braves as members of the VBA,” Chairman
    Glenn Christian said. “We have had (Vice Chairman) John Schuerholz and the General Manager
    (John Coppolella) speak at our meetingsto keep us updated on
    the Braves and their activities.”


    The association meets monthly [see website for location] and hosts other monthly
    and special events. In addition to the association’s Braves game outing April 18,
    Christian said he is excited about the Vinings

    “We do a lot of events that impact the community, so we concentrate on quality
    events for people tonetwork, increase their contact database and
    enhance their business,” he said.
