    Hi Roz,
    Can you go to both places Norcross to put together the bags and then downtown to give out the bags? I was not sure if it might not be enough time.

    January 31, 2013

    • Roz

      Hello Val....we will be putting the blessing bags together at the Norcross storage and then we will be distributing them at the downtown Atlanta location.

      January 31, 2013

  • Roz

    If anyone has any clothing to donate, this would be the perfect time. Early spring cleaning.

    I live in Smyrna. Can I meet you all in Atlanta ? I am bringing bags and stuff to fill them. Can I do that in town or do I need to come to norcross?

    January 28, 2013

    • Roz

      @Diane....You can meet us in Atlanta. I will email you the directions.

    Roz for the blessing bags. I am happy to get the supplies. Do I need to make the blessing bags ahead of time or just bring the supplies to meetup?

    January 28, 2013

    • Roz

      @Dennie....you can just bring the supplies and we will put them together at the Norcross location.

    Hi Roz, I can help with the sorting and organizing as well. Not sure if I can make the distribution part.

    January 28, 2013

  • art w.

    I'm interested in the sorting and organizing only. Do you need my help?

    January 28, 2013

    • Roz

    For the items collected on Feb 2nd, when will they be distributed in downtown Atlanta and may we sign up to assist?

    January 27, 2013

    • Marsha

      Roz, I was wondering if it was possible to volunteer in the distribution of the items going to the homeless in downtown Atlanta instead of going all the way up to Norcross. I live in southwest Atlanta approx 15min from downtown.

      January 27, 2013

    • Roz

      Sure. I will send you the information.

      January 27, 2013

  • Marsha

    Will this be an ongoing event - the 1st Saturday of every month?

    January 27, 2013

    • Roz

      @Marsha....that is my hope if we can get the support for it. We shall see.
