Every December, we strive to ensure a memorable and meaningful Christmas for over 3,000 homeless children in metro Atlanta.

The 2016 12 Days of Caring collection campaign will begin on November 25 and last until December 16. Volunteers will collect, wrap, personalize, and deliver gifts to over 3,000 homeless children and several thousand underprivileged kids all right here in metro Atlanta.

If you’d like to donate new toys, gifts, or clothing you can bring them by our office in Roswell.

This year our Wrap Party will be at 6180 Shiloh Crossing Road, Alpharetta, 30005.

Going north on GA 400 exit at McFarland Road (12A). Go right. Go ½ mile to Shiloh Road, and turn left. Go just over 1 mile to Shiloh Crossing and turn right. 6180 Shiloh Crossing is first building on right.


Here is a Google maps LINK.

The hours are between 10am and 4pm. Dates are December 16th until we are done- probably by the 21st. Please register if you plan to attend!
