ADN Atlanta is partnering with Blankets of Love Outreach to adopt 3 families and help provide toys, clothes, blankets, groceries and a holiday meal. We want to raise $300 to provide each family with a $100 giftcard.
13th Annual Blankets of Love Outreach Christmas Joy 12/17 - 12/18
Blankets Of Love Outreach Celebrates 15 YearsTaking of homeless persons and low income families
During the holiday season, Blankets of Love Outreach adopts families with multiple children and provides toys, clothes, blankets, groceries and a holiday meal. Our event each year provides families with at least two toys (per child) and other necessary items. The hope for this holiday season is to adopt 25 families.
The event is called “Blankets of Love Outreach Christmas Joy” and will be held at the International Charter School of Atlanta (Gym). This year we will change a few things to accommodate our families. Instead of groceries and a take home meal, we will be requesting grocery gift cards. With the increasing cost of groceries, we would like to allow our families to purchase a really great dinner and also any additional needed grocery items. Our goal is to provide each family with a $100 grocery card (or combination of cards). Also, we are in need of volunteers for Friday set up and the event on Saturday.
Also, for those of you who can, we are in need of several items listed below. Many of you donated cash in lieu of items last year. If this is your preference, I will use the cash to purchase items or the grocery gift cards.In-person Volunteer Opportunity
