Atlanta, GA – In support of our company’s mission to deliver economic relief to low-income residents, Dimension Renewable Energy (“Dimension”) employees gathered for a day of community service to support local families in need this holiday season. Partnering with HOPE Atlanta, one of the city’s oldest and most steadfast agencies combating homelessness, Dimension employees packed over 16,000 pounds of food from the non-profit's East Point warehouse, helping to deliver 13,750 meals to 550 families across the metro Atlanta area.
“We are so grateful for this opportunity to give back to our community here in Atlanta over the holidays,” said Rafael Dobrzynski, Dimension’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Dimension is committed to building community solar projects that directly benefit the communities we invest in. Volunteering in the city where our employees live and work is an extension of that same commitment.”
“It was such a pleasure to collaborate with Dimension Energy,” said Amy Olvey, Director of Community Engagement at HOPE Atlanta. “One in nine people in our communities face food insecurity, and food boxes from HOPE Atlanta are a critical resource for families and individuals struggling to make ends meet. Our dedicated volunteers are our boots on the ground, and we could not do this important work without them.”
As a community solar developer, Dimension prioritizes partnerships with organizations like HOPE Atlanta who most understand the needs of our communities. This partnership model is the bedrock of our project development approach, and it enables us to localize the benefits of our projects to the greatest extent possible. Working with local community leaders ensures that capacity-building investments like electricity savings, workforce development opportunities, and educational programs are directed to those who need it most.
“Partnering with groups like HOPE Atlanta helps us achieve our shared goal of building strong, prosperous communities,” Dobrzynski added. “I’m proud of our employees for dedicating their time to this important cause. Thank you to HOPE and Ms. Olvey; we could not have worked with a better organization to make a positive impact for Atlanta families.”
