For Christmas 2018, the 26 families in Homeless Recovery and AfterCare have made a wish list of things they would like to receive. Visa gift cards as well as cards for gas, the Nike store, Wal-Mart and Target  are popular requests. A sample of other items on the wish list include a bunk bed for boys, dolls, guitar games, action figures, basketball hoop, and pots and pans.

We would like to coordinate your donations with the families’ requests to avoid duplication. Please contact Cheryl Carter at ccarter@familypromisegwinnett.org or (404) 668-0379 to see what is still needed. Donations are due Tuesday, Dec. 18. Please bring them wrapped and tagged with the family’s case number and the first name of the recipient. Cheryl will give you that information.

Thanks to donations from Sugarloaf United Methodist Church, we have plenty of grocery store gift cards. Also, Honey Baked Ham and Kroger donated hams and turkeys for our AfterCare families.
