ATLANTA (GA, USA) NOVEMBER 21, 2022
“We believe there is more to staying healthy than just preventing illness, and with a simple act of kindness through giving back, we can create a moment of joy that could last a lifetime.”
Christmas is supposed to be filled with joy and presents under the tree. Yet many families in the local community are struggling to keep the magic alive for their kids, let alone afford a Christmas tree surrounded by gifts.
This year, Health is teaming up with Commissioner, Bruce Holmes, to bless 15 local families of Henry County for the holiday season. By partnering together, they hope to keep the Christmas cheer alive and make sure underprivileged families and children have something to be excited about this season.
Over the last 8 years, with the help of their patients, has spread holiday joy through their Annual Holiday Toy Drive, under their former name Eagles Landing Health. They are excited to expand on that tradition as Health and continue to help local families in need through their Holiday Joy Drive – Adopt a Family program.
just preventing illness, and with a simple act of kindness through giving back, we can create a moment of joy that could last a lifetime.”
Whether it’s an individual, a group, or an organization — people in the community are encouraged to register a local family in need of holiday assistance. Each family registered will be considered, and those who qualify based on their level of need will be chosen to “adopt”.
The last day to register for the Holiday Joy Drive – Adopt a Family program is Thursday, December 1st, for gifts to be delivered before Christmas morning.
Commissioner Bruce Holmes said, “It’s amazing to have local businesses in our community who are always ready to give back to our citizens. With the extremely high cost of food and goods due to inflation, there are many people in our communities who are struggling. Thank God we have community partners who are always willing to close in the gap. I want to give a very special ‘thank you’ to Health and their leadership for all they do for the South Metro Atlanta area.”
Other elected officials who will participate in the Health’s Holiday Joy Drive — Adopt a Family program include DA Darius Pattillo, McDonough Mayor Sandra Vincent, Hampton Mayor Ann , Commissioner Vivian Thomas, and Commissioner Dee Clemmons.
