50 by 50 Initiative

 

This year marks 50 years since the incorporation of Georgia Agape.  In honor and celebration of our incorporation and 50 years of service in 2020, we are launching our 50 by 50 campaign. For the next two years, each month via our website and communications, Georgia Agape will be requesting two unique items monthly to help with serving children  and families. We are asking our many supporters to help us in this milestone feat. Each item will assist us in meeting our 50 by 50 goal of 50 new foster families by our 50th year! With over 15,000 children in the care of the state, there could be no more perfect time to grow our Agape family. With your help, we are sure to meet and exceed our goal.

For November and December, our list is as follows:

November – Family activity certificates (movies, zoo, aquarium, museums, center for puppetry arts, etc) and family friendly restaurant gift cards.

December – NEW toy donations for playroom and Sponsor activities registration (karate, dance, sports)

If you are interested in donating items monthly, please reach out to us in the Agape office. Our point of contact for the first year of this mammoth initiative will be Kimberly Hardy-Johns who can be reached at (770) 452-9995. Please remember to check our Agape website at www.georgiaagape.org for our current drive requests.

If your heart is pulling you towards serving families via foster care or adoption, there is a great need. Please contact Sharalyn Donald, our Resource Development Coordinator, at sharalyn@georgiaagape.org or via phone at (770) 452-9995.
