Homeless Shelters During the Holiday Season:

Homeless+Shelters+During+the+Holiday+Season%3A

 

 

During this holiday season there are about 3,300+ people homeless in Atlanta area. During the holidays homeless shelters will decorate the place to make it festive.                                          They will bring in a tree and decorate it. People bring in presents for the homeless as well. People also volunteer their time and dress up in festive clothing to provide food for the homeless. Churches will also accept donations of money, clothing, or food for the homeless. Churches also send hygienic needs, bracelets, little toys, and socks in a box to a foreign country.

An example of a church that does that would be Sugar Valley Baptist Church. So if you are interested in making a Christmas box go to their website http://www.sugarvalleybaptistchurch.org/ and contact them. Churches sometimes put a tree with present underneath for the homeless. You can help people in need by donating socks and shoes to them. You can also provide a bus ticket to allow them to be reunited with their families during this wonderful season. You can provide a meal or even donate money to any needs or necessities of the homeless. This link shows details about how you can help someone in need during this holiday season.
