PROVISIONS OF HOPE BASKETS DELIVERY SUCCESSFUL!
On October 3rd Lydia's Place had the honor of delivering close to 80 baskets to homeless & foster care liaisons from the Athens area as well as from across the state. We also were able to deliver over 100 pillows as well as other personal hygiene items. Thank you to all who contributed, donated and purchased items for this ministry.
Through this ministry, Lydia's Place has been able to positively impact young adults in the Athens, Macon, Albany, Savannah, Columbus and Atlanta areas that are dealing with homelessness and/or foster care.
Special thank you to Embark Georgia, Seller Labs, Tyler and Company & Jackson Healthcare for their support of this project.
And another Special thank you to Lydia's Place Board Member, Robin Wallar Woodall for her organization and leadership!
