Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty - Urban Nest Real Estate Group GA# 305421

In today's challenging times, some of the wonderful organizations that provide food and toys to needy atlanta fundraisers volunteerfamilies are struggling.  It is more important than ever that we reach out and help one another -- if it is a $20 toy or an hour of your time, every little bit matters.

Three easy ways to contribute to those who really need it:

1)   Buy a pre-packaged bag of food from your local grocery store (Publix and Kroger have donation gift bags in the front of the store that range in price from $6 to $20

2)  Stop by Wal-mart this weekend and buy a toy for a child in foster care.  Clark Howard, Consumer Reporter for 750 AM radio, leads an effort each year called "Clark's Christmas Kids".  His goal is to collect toys and clothes for children in foster care

Get details and see which Walmart stores Clark will be visiting.

*** If you aren't in the Atlanta area, the Toys for Tots collection bins are all over your city.

3)  Volunteer -- Anywhere, anytime.  You can visit the United Way website and they offer a monthly view of all the volunteer opportunities.

Visit the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta and get a list of their volunteer projects

 

If you also plan to donote to your favorite charity this season, please read Wise Giving to Charities, a helpful guide written by Daniel Borochoff, President of the American Institute of Philanthropy.

You can also visit Charity Navigator, an independant charity evaluator that will help you to understand how much of your money is actually reaching the person or group that needs it.
