196 Shelter Residents Moving to New Homes from Peachtree-Pine;
Housewarming gifts being collected 

ATLANTA (November 30, 2017) – Central Atlanta Progress, in collaboration with Partners for HOME, encourages the Atlanta community to donate household starter gifts to those transitioning out of the Peachtree-Pine Shelter and into permanent housing.  

Peachtree-Pine shelter clients have few belongings, especially kitchen wares or cleaning supplies for their new homes, so an Amazon wish list of household items has been set up by Partner for HOME (PFH) staff. PFH is a nonprofit collaborating with the providers of the Atlanta Homeless Continuum of Care to facilitate the transition.
Donors may purchase entire starter kits or purchase a la carte items from $1 to $50 from the wish list on Amazon.com. Items range from hand soap and dryer sheets to laundry baskets and dishes. Household Starter Kit Wish List: http://bit.ly/pphomestarter

Supporting the Peachtree-Pine shelter clients as they transition to permanent housing reaffirms our community's commitment to making homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring, and the community’s generosity is appreciated during this season of giving and compassion.

For those interested in making a donation in person, purchased items can be dropped off at 818 Pollard Blvd., 3rd floor, Atlanta GA 30315.
