Midtown Assistance Center (MAC)

The Midtown Assistance Center project involved a full renovation of a former restaurant into a food distribution facility, client outreach center, and corporate environment for the non-profit organization in midtown Atlanta. The new facility includes workstations for employees and volunteers, the client-choice food pantry, reception and space for client consultations.

Leveraging its partnership with the Lifecycle Building Center and community network, Leapley delivered the new headquarters of the Midtown Assistance Center by securing flooring, furniture, and carpet tiles donated by Leapley clients, The Coca-Cola Company and Georgia Power. Our team worked diligently through preconstruction and construction to reduce project costs and maximize the client’s budget and investment in the community. 

MAC is always accepting donations to extend its impact. Contact mac@midtownassistancecenter.org to inquire about volunteering or to donate financial gifts and non-perishable food items.
