Families Give

This Thanksgiving a family volunteer group called Little Helpers stopped to remember those who are less fortunate through Lift Up Atlanta.  Founded in September 2011 by Rosalind Garner, Lift Up Atlanta is designed to meet the basic needs of the homeless, including food, clothing, hygiene needs, educational services etc.  The ultimate goal of the program is to raise confident children who see giving back to the community as a normal aspect of their lives.
