Getting Furniture to Schools in Atlanta

While an Atlanta schools organization was getting by with folding tables and chairs, Duke Realty tenant Caremedic had more furniture than it could handle. Rather than let all those perfectly good chairs, desks, and so on end up in the landfill, Duke Realty Senior Property Manager Pam Sanders worked with Techbridge—a Duke Realty tenant and a non-profit organization that works to bring technology to other non-profits—to find a home for the furniture. The result? Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) Metro Atlanta Charter School packed up its folding chairs and replaced them with solid, sturdy pieces of furniture.

It’s an upgrade that Caremedic was delighted to support and one that David Jernigan, executive director of KIPP Metro Atlanta expressed big thanks for.
