Georgia Company AtHomeNet Brings Websites & Well-Being to Communities During the Holidays

"The Nation's Leading Online Community Communications Solutions Provider Launches a Series of Charitable Events To Close Out The Year"

December 18, 2009


Suwanee, GA Dec 18th 2009- HOA & Community Association Website Firm AtHomeNet& (www.AtHomeNet.com) spent the latter months of 2009 focused on celebrating a successful year by giving back to the community. Beginning earlier than the standard holiday season, AtHomeNet began the campaign to spotlight a local charity with a "Costumes for Communities" fundraiser for Halloween. Employees paid $5 per person to dress up on October 31st, and the company matched 100% of all money raised. Proceeds went to Rainbow Village, a metro-Atlanta based group devoted to breaking the cycles of homelessness, poverty, and domestic violence.

In November, employees organized the first annual "Calls For Cans" initiative and pledged to collect a can of food for every tech support call taken in November. "We have fanatical tech support", explained Jeff Sanders, President/Director of Technology of AtHomeNet. "We field calls quickly and successfully, I hope the rest of the office can keep up with our pace! Our goal was not only met, but exceeded by ten cans, making the first year campaign a huge success."

AtHomeNet is currently rounding out the season with a toy-drive competition, born when the Sales Reps (who are calling themselves "Santa's Reps") challenged the Tech Support (or the newly dubbed "Toy Support") Reps to see which team would donate the most toys. The numbers are still up in the air, but the Sales team is pretty confident so far: "We're a naturally competitive breed," laughed AtHomeNet sales associate Becky Dutcher. "This is the perfect opportunity to provide delight to children at the holidays and to gain office bragging rights," she added.

"What a whimsical way to help others," said Production Manager Tammy Johnson, who gladly paid for the opportunity to dress in costume during the Costumes for Communities fundraiser. "Although Halloween was only the beginning of the season, we were just getting started."

Providing the newest technology solutions for Property Management, and Community-Based Associations makes AtHomeNet uniquely qualified to understand the necessary elements of a well-kept neighborhood; most specifically, the need to give back. "Every community is more than just a collection of homes with manicured lawns and regulation-sized mailboxes." stated company founder and CEO Susan Sanders. "We build websites for the Community Associations, so it is only fitting we build hope for the Communities themselves."

As the nations' leading provider of web-based solutions for Community/Homeowner Associations, AtHomeNet spends the majority of the year building websites around the needs of managed communities and neighborhoods. This holiday season, the staff and management were inspired to build something a bit different for their own community. All things totaled, AtHomeNet raised more than $900 worth of donations for Rainbow Village.
