Good Evening Everyone--
Here is your weekly update from The Place.... There is so much to share this week.
New Warehouse Info
Yes, we have a new warehouse that will be home to our food inventory and our youth program.
4465 Martin Rd
Cumming, GA 30028
We are so excited to have this new warehouse and to be able to have a bit of breathing room. It is going to be great for the Youth team to have dedicated space and Phil, our food inventory coordinator will be able to turn his forklift around with ease in the new space.
What you need to know:
Food Distribution to clients remains the SAME--Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays at 2550 The Place Circle (where we do it now)
Chick Fil A The Collection exit 13
At our invitation, CFA came and looked at our drive thru for food distribution to see what feedback they could offer. Their GM came and said our system was impressive and that we were super organized.... and that we got ALOT done with our mighty crew of volunteers and in our tight space. She said we were doing an amazing job.
How is that?!?!? Kudos from the industry leaders in drive thru service. Big round of applause for Val and the food distribution team.
