Homrich Berg is pleased to announce that firm Principal Adam Fuller was recently named the 2015 Volunteer of the Year by the YMCA of Metro Atlanta – The Carl E. Sanders Branch. Homrich Berg CEO Andy Berg noted that “We have a strong commitment to giving back to our community and are proud of Adam’s accomplishments as an example of making a difference where we live.”

Adam Fuller, a city of Atlanta resident, received the YMCA of Metro Atlanta’s 2015 Volunteer of the Year award for his service with The Carl E. Sanders Family YMCA at Buckhead. He was honored at the annual volunteer recognition dinner Monday, November 9, 2015 along with other branch volunteers.

Fuller joined the Sanders Family Y in 2000 as a way to get his workout in early since he had young children at home. He became a regular and found more than just a place to work out but somewhere he could make a difference while creating friendships, too. Now he is a member of the Board of Directors at the Sanders Family Y and the Strategic Initiatives Committee, and serves as the chairperson for the Capital Campaign. In addition, he is a member of the YMCA of Metro Atlanta’s Endowment Committee.

“The Y is making a difference in peoples’ lives across our community every day because the Y is ‘community,’” said Fuller. “The Y’s ability to bring people together across all demographics through expansive programming, which makes a direct impact on our community and changes lives for the better, is what sets the Y apart from other organizations.”

One of Fuller’s favorite parts of attending board meetings is hearing about the impact the Y programs are having on members’ lives. Hearing these stories is what motivates him to want to help expand the capabilities of the Y, in particular the Sanders Y.

“The Y offers a lot of ways to volunteer ones time, talent, and treasure. Volunteering at the Y leads to seeing the fruits of the work and contributions. For me, volunteering at the Y is important because I am giving back to the community and helping the Y create opportunities for others to build better lives for themselves through healthy lifestyles.”
