Atlanta, Dec. 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Promotional, advertising and marketing firm, New Acquisitions, is a company that prides themselves in their philanthropic ventures, especially during the holiday season. Their tradition of giving back to the community has continued through their most recent donation to Meals on Wheels' Atlanta chapter. 

Per the charity's website, their mission is to support senior independence through providing meals, shelter, education, and a community where they feel welcome and supported.  The Meals on Wheels program is designed by nutritionists and are meant to assist seniors 60 years of age and above that are unable to prepare or afford their own meals. In Atlanta alone 200,000 meals are delivered annually and over 130 seniors are currently on a waiting list for the program. 

The New Acquisitions team came together to donate a total of 6 weeks of home delivered meals for seniors in the Atlanta area. With their donation, the team was given hand written letters from seniors thanking them for their generosity. 

"It was great to see the generosity from those we were able to impact during this time of year," said Amber Abrams, Executive Assistant to the National Director of Operations at New Acquisitions, "When you donate, you know what cause the money is going to but sometimes you don't get to see how it directly affects the people that it's meant to help. The thank you notes were a wonderful surprise and I love that we got to indirectly communicate with the people that we helped." 

The donation to the charity hit home for Human Resources Coordinator, Morgan Wright, whose grandfather was a recipient of the program while he lived with her as a child. Wright's grandfather lost his left eye due a work accident in his twenties. Years later, his right eye contracted a retinal disease that caused him to slowly lose the rest of his sight over time leaving him blind.  

Since Wright and her brother were both in school and her parents both worked during the day, her grandfather was left alone to prepare his own lunch which proved to be difficult. Her grandfather luckily was chosen to be a recipient of the program shortly after a neighbor had suggested the charity. 

"It was so much easier for him to get meals delivered straight to him that were ready to eat, instead of him trying to cook [meals] for himself," said Wright, "Knowing that we are going to help other people like my grandpa was an awesome way to kick off the holiday season. I hope that us donating inspires other companies to do the same." 

The New Acquisitions team is excited to start their season of giving and plan to donate to other local charities both during the holidays and into the next year.
