What We Do
17,726 Bookbags filled with school supplies since 2005!
We fill thousands of book bags with school supplies every year to help our local school children get what they need. They are donated to 30-40 schools and children's organizations every year. Many of the children who receive our book bags would otherwise not have one.
We Kare Bears - 7,164 hugs donated!
Since 2005, we have donated 7,164 We Kare Bears to children who are ill in our local hospitals. Gwinnett Medical's Pediatric Floor, Aflac Children's Center, and South Forsyth Hospital received our fuzzy donations, as well as local first responders, policeman and firemen. Our We Kare Bear's mission is to comfort and care for these special children (and even for their parents) during their illness, or if there has been an emergency in their life.
Shopping 4 Kids feeding over 7,419+ children since 2009!
Our Shopping 4 Kids event started in 2009, when many charities were suffering from lack of support in the middle of the economic downturn. Our goal was to help them fill their empty shelves, so they in turn could feed and clothe needy children in our communities. Since then, we have been able to help 10-12 children's charities per year through this much - needed event.
Books 4 Kids helping 45,720+ children learn to read!
Since 2016, we are donating thousands of books every year to help children learn how to read. Literacy is a serious issue for children. “Insufficient vocabulary, comprehension and literacy skills negatively impact children for the rest of their lives." We are going to help change that for Georgia children!
Red Day and Flex Funds have helped over 20,569+ children!
Since 2011, our offices have found many different ways to uniquely serve children in their communities. From installing playgrounds for children of veterans, to helping domestic violence shelters with computers they need to help the children, to equestrian therapy for abused children and SO much more. They find the greatest need and then fill it!
Holiday Kards 4 Kids for 3,110 teenagers in need since 2005!
Each year at the holidays, we donate gift kards with a value of $75 each, to the "forgotten teenagers." At that time of year, often the little children will be remembered, but unfortunately not the older children in need as it can be hard to know what to purchase for them. Our gift kards are designed so that the teenagers have a little bit of holiday money to get something that they need or would really like to have. We try to fill that gap.
