DULUTH, Ga., September 29, 2015 – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, is excited to partner today with hometown customer, the Atlanta Falcons and future neighbor, Georgia Institute of Technology, to bring curb appeal and make improvements to the Salvation Army Bellwood Boys & Girls Club near the future home of the Atlanta Falcons and new Atlanta United soccer team, Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Inside, the club has first-class facilities such as a gym, classrooms, pool, kitchen, game rooms and more. But outside, with its plain beige façade, it could be mistaken for a warehouse. Atlanta Falcons players Paul Worrilow, Desmond Trufant, William Moore, Devonta Freeman and staff will work alongside more than 150 NCR employees and Tech students to change that by painting murals inspired by the children’s own artwork, planting and building picnic tables.
Additionally, the volunteers will play games with the children who attend the Boys and Girls Club after school.
"We are so grateful for the opportunity to partner with NCR and the Falcons in this beautification project of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Atlanta - Bellwood Club,” says Leisa Smith, Executive Director, Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Atlanta. “The time and dedication given means a lot to the community and the children of Vine City and English Avenue area."
“NCR is continuing its proud, 131-year history of philanthropy in the communities where we live and work,” added Yvonne N. Whitaker, NCR Foundation administrator. “NCR Foundation is a proud sponsor and partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta. I’m excited our employees have the opportunity to directly support the Bellwood Club, deepening our partnership and our impact in Atlanta neighborhoods.”
