ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Tech giant Amazon is helping ensure safety for Atlanta seniors by donating 1,000 Ring security systems through the nonprofit called HouseProud.

The Ring security bundles will include a doorbell, stick-up camera, and pathway lights. Those will all be distributed through House Proud, a non-profit that serves seniors throughout the metro by making sure they are dry, safe, and warm.

They’ve helped the Hollis family in Audobon Forest over the past two years with things like a new roof and walk-in bathtub.

“It’s safe, it’s comfortable and I can get in and out of the door, you know, there’s no drama here,” said Smith Hollis.

“We’re just so grateful, humble, and thankful for all of the services. And like he said, living here and having a home, staying in your home, is so much better than living in a senior facility,” said Shirley Hollis, Smith’s wife.

Amazon also gave HouseProud a $25,000 check to help more families like the Hollis’ to stay safe and comfortable in their homes.
