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

We are into our planning stage for 2017’s “12 Days of Caring”.  The collection campaign begins November 24th, the day after Thanksgiving, and runs through December 17th. The Wrap Party begins December 15th and runs through December 17th. The hours are 10 am till 4:30 pm each day. Additional help will probably be needed the week before Christmas. The location is 3965 John’s Creek Court, Suwanee, GA 30024.  For map  CLICK HERE
