Getting their kicks

Two churches teamed up to provide dozens of residents of Huntington Ridge Apartments a fun afternoon Sunday as part of the UNITE: Compassion in Action weekend. UNITE is an umbrella organization of missions-minded churches.
Volunteers from Perimeter Presbyterian Church and New Church of Atlanta, a Korean congregation, served “HR” residents hotdogs, chips, Gatorade, cookies and other treats. Perimeter even brought along its cotton candy machine, which was a popular attraction.
