Odyssey’s 13th Annual Holiday Outreach: Our 2017 beneficiary was Stand Up for Kids, a national non-profit based in Atlanta.
Odyssey Personal Financial Advisors, in partnership with their generous clients, provided gift cards and cash donations totaling $3,195 in support of Stand Up for Kids through Odyssey’s 13th Annual Holiday Outreach.
Stand Up for Kids is a national non-profit based here in Atlanta, GA with a mission to end the cycle of youth homelessness. One of Odyssey’s partners, Robert Fezza, volunteers with the organization serving both as a mentor for an at-risk youth at Roswell High School and as a team member walking the streets of Atlanta reaching out to and helping homeless youth.
Odyssey is humbled by the support their clients have shown for their Annual Holiday Outreach as the cumulative giving over the last 13 years exceeds $31,000.
Imagine being 15 or 21 years old living on the streets, alone, with no one to trust, dependent on your own means of survival to get through each day. Many have addictions and/or tragic stories, but one warm-hearted gesture at a time can be the difference in empowering these youth to find the right path.
You can help too. Check out their website standupforkids.org to learn about opportunities to volunteer and/or give this holiday season.
