Every December, we strive to ensure a memorable and meaningful Christmas for over 3,000 homeless children in Metro Atlanta living in group homes and shelters by providing them with personalized and wrapped presents just for them.  We rely on the community, businesses and social/civic groups to accomplish our goal.

We are in the planning stages for our 2018 annual 12 Days of Caring and Adopt-a-Shelter Campaigns.  If you or your group would like to participate by donating NEW toys, gifts, or clothing to let the kids we serve know that they have not been forgotten for the holidays, please call our office at 770-649-7117 for more information.  Get into the real holiday spirit!
