by Eric Pudalov, Community Events Coordinator

Continuing with our Thanksgiving Food Drive, I would like to announce that Costco has agreed to contribute food items to the cause (specifically dinner rolls, green beans, and corn) to help us meet our goals.

Speaking of which, Costco, on October 28, opened a new location in Brookhaven, GA, specifically at this address:

500 Brookhaven Ave.
Atlanta, GA 30319

Their regular hours are:

Mon.-Fri. 10AM-8:30PM
Sat. 9AM-7PM
Sun. 10AM-6PM

We here at GCSS would like to thank Costco for giving back to their community by providing Thanksgiving dinners for individuals in need. They are a fine example of what a business can be, and we in turn wish them much success with their new location.

We also look forward to being their customers in the future; the help is much appreciated, Costco!

About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
