Our First Project Winter Warm Up! 2015
With only approximately three weeks of planning we managed to successfully carry out our first Project Winter Warm Up in December of 2015! We collected coats, jackets, scarves, gloves, and other warm items, as well as bottled water, non-perishable snacks, and small toiletry type items. After bagging outerwear by size and adding the additional items we were able to assemble over 160 packages for distribution.
We loaded the packages into our vehicles and we were headed towards our destination: the streets of downtown Atlanta. Our first stop proved to be our only, as we very quickly gave away EVERY SINGLE BAG within 45 minutes.
We were so humbled and grateful for the outpouring of support that we received. Without all of the generous donations and the selfless help of incredible friends, we would not have been able to pull this off. It is absolutely true that success is a team effort.
