Aaron's Provides Game-Changing Surprise For Metro Atlanta Family
ATLANTA, April 13, 2021 // PRNewswire // - The Aaron's Company, Inc. (NYSE: AAN) recently partnered with former NFL star Warrick Dunn to deliver home furnishings and a down-payment assistance check to a single mother and first-time homeowner in Austell, Ga.
This marks the 189th home celebration by Warrick Dunn Charities (WDC), the non-profit organization founded by former NFL standout Warrick Dunn that identifies single parents across the country and helps them to achieve the goal of first-time homeownership as a part of its "Home for the Holidays" program. In addition to Aaron's, Dunn's former high school teammate and philanthropist Ryan Jumonville provided support for finishing touches, groceries and down-payment supplement.
"Aaron's continues to support the work of Warrick Dunn Charities and its mission to change families' lives all over the country," said Douglas Lindsay, CEO of The Aaron's Company. "Especially after such a challenging year, we are delighted to provide Layla and her family with the tools they need to make this new house a home."
Layla works as a caregiver for Comfort Community Center in Marietta, Ga. She previously lived with her three children - ranging in age from 5 to 17 - in less than ideal conditions, preventing them from playing outside and living to their fullest potential.
"Layla and her family are going to thrive in their new home, where they will be able to take advantage of a spacious backyard and plenty of room to play and enjoy each other's company," said Warrick Dunn. "Having brought our program to three homes in this neighborhood over the last six months, I'm so grateful to Aaron's for helping us build a community that will truly be the lasting legacy of 'Homes for the Holidays.'"
The two previous home celebrations in Austell took place in October and November of 2020. Aaron's has partnered with Warrick Dunn to bring opportunity and inspiration to families for over 17 years.
