JE Dunn Construction
2555 Cumberland Pkwy
Last year thanks to the input from our clients, employees, and partners, we were able to solidify our purpose statement: We exist to enrich lives through inspired people and places. We enrich lives through our community service work, our development programs for employees, and most importantly through the people who use the buildings we have the privilege of building. We have found that inspired people build inspired places. And these places create and foster inspiration in the communities they serve.

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 meetings
to 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
Business Expo March 21 and the Cobb County public safety and veterans recognitions and the Vinings Business/Organization of the Year held at the October, November and December meetings, respectively.
“We do a lot of events that impact the community, so we concentrate on quality events for people to
network, increase their contact database and enhance their business,” he said.
