Jeremy Turner received the award for creating Contribute2America, his service organization dedicated to helping homeless and near homeless people. The organization, which has a thrift store at 3342 Clairmont Rd., connects those in need with services food, first aid and other types of support.

So, that's two people in the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff community who have received awards for service from Ellis. eighth-grader Spencer Wilson was the other. Here's a link to his story:

Congratulations, Jeremy and Spencer (again).

Jeremy, you truly are a local hero. And you have piloted a model for responsible business and citizenship practices in the community that I really hope other businesses in our community will follow. Thanks, also, Jeremy, for sponsoring Clairmont Presbyterian's 5K Challenge last month . . . another way in which you put your commitment to the community into action.
