Thanks to the efforts of the PA and ALL of our wonderful families, over 75 people joined together to assemble 178 snack bags and 160 toiletry kits for the good people of Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Atlanta.

Tremendous thanks to all who ordered items through the Amazon Wishlist and the hundreds who signed up to volunteer. The first shift of volunteers worked so diligently, that we were able to finish two hours early!
