Did you know that two assistance shelters in Atlanta have been shut down just this summer alone? As a result Peachtree & Pine Homeless Shelter, a shelter intended only for men, has opened up its doors to the overflow of women and children that the city no longer has room for. At the moment, the shelter is assisting over 600 individuals, 150 of which are women and children fleeing abusive relationships.
As you are aware, Christmas is around the corner and Santa doesn’t usually make stops at homeless shelters. We’re here to change that. The Big Hearts Give BIG donations campaign is on a mission to help provide the men, women and children of Peachtree & Pine Homeless Shelter with one of each of the following gifts for the holidays by partnering up with Won by One.
- Long Sleeve Shirt
- Soap & Washcloth
- Toothpaste & Brush
- Personalized Bibles & Bookmarks
- Hygiene Kits
Won by One has been making Christmas visits to the shelter for 6 years now, and have seen the difference even the smallest gift can make. “I noticed a man blankly staring at the label of his gift for minutes. When I asked him why he hadn’t opened it, he said he felt so grateful that someone actually took the time to write his name of the label,” said a volunteer from last years visit.
With your small donation, you can give these people something that will not only keep them warm at night, but that will keep their hearts sunny. Christmas is a time of giving. Help us give these people a Christmas they will never forget.
