Back-to-school time is exciting for children and their parents. It’s a chance to meet new teachers and make new friends. However, starting the school year without the proper supplies can make new beginnings difficult. That’s where LiftUp Atlanta steps in. Our team sorted school supplies, helped children and parents fill lists of supplies for their children, and packed up backpacks donated by various individuals and organizations to support LiftUp Atlanta’s program.
We also had an opportunity to deliver some much needed men’s clothing to the Gateway Center, a homeless shelter in downtown Atlanta. Along with the School Supply Drive, LiftUp Atlanta collects clothing donations for needy families in metro Atlanta. Witnessing families getting what they need for their children really had an impact. It’s wonderful to know that people in our community are getting help from an organization like LiftUp Atlanta!
Lift Up Atlanta is a nonprofit organization committed to helping the homeless and feeding the hungry. LiftUp Atlanta works with several homeless shelters in the metro Atlanta area and the homeless directly in providing programs like career workshops, a computer training program, Thanksgiving food drive, Christmas toy drive, warm wear donation drive and LiftUp Atlanta’s community closet which provides clothing, shoes, household goods, personal hygiene items and other basic items for families in need.
