A Gift of Love Services Director, Brenda Kirk, volunteers, friends, and Chamber representatives celebrated their new location by holding a DC Chamber Ribbon Cutting on May 31st. A Gift of Love Services is now located at 3900 Veterans Memorial Highway in Lithia Springs.
A Gift of Love sponsors children from the Douglas County School System. They currently sponsor twenty schools and serve over five hundred children in need. Each child receives a bag filled with items including pop tarts, oatmeal, cereal, ramen noodles, canned pasta, canned fruit, pudding cups, granola bars, and crackers or chips. During the holiday season, children receive enough food for the days they are out of school.
At the beginning of each school year, A Gift of Love sponsors over 1,000 children through the ‘Back to School Party’ where each child receives a new book bag filled with the school supplies needed. Children also receive a hygiene bag containing a toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, shampoo, deodorant, bar soap, band-aids, and tissue. Additionally, they receive a pair of pants, shirt, underwear, socks, and a pair of shoes.
If you are interested in donating any of these items, only new clothes are accepted.
