Christian City Asks the Community for Help

The Children’s Village at Christian City is in need of the following items and would appreciate any help the community can provide:

Sponsor A Child: Choose a boy or a girl to sponsor and receive a photo, profile and regular updates. $30 a month helps to pay for basic needs such as food, clothing and education

· Donations to Graceland Thrift Shop. Proceeds help to pay for the education of the children who live in the cottages. Volunteers are needed to work in the Thrift Shop to accept donations, sort, and help with customers

· Gift cards to Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, or Publix

· Paper towels, napkins, and toilet tissue
Canned fruits, vegetables, and pasta
Peanut butter and jelly
Individually wrapped snacks and drinks
Personal and dental hygiene products

· Kid friendly cereals
· Batteries
· Cleaning supplies
· Ziploc bags of all sizes

Please contact Heidi Becker at 770-703-2636 for drop off details or for more information about the Children’s Village and how you can Sponsor A Child. Christian City has been caring for abandoned and abused children in a family centered residential setting since 1965. Children live in cottages with full time house parents. Over 1,000 children have called Christian City “home.” For more information, please visit our website at www.christiancity.org.
