Christmas is the time for giving. That is why for the second year in a row, our Peachtree Residential team decided to forgo a companywide holiday lunch and instead, participate in Clark’s Christmas Kids.
Clark’s Christmas Kids is an annual Christmas program that aims to make the holidays a little better for foster children in Georgia by collecting toys and presents for them to unwrap on Christmas morning. Each child in the foster care system in Georgia has the opportunity to request three items with a cumulative value of $150, and people all over the state work to fulfil these Christmas wishes. This annual event is on its 29th year of operation and has a goal of giving over 9,000 kids presents this year.
Alec Rickenbaker, President of Peachtree Residential comments, “With our great success last year, we are motivated to collect even more toys and help foster kids across Georgia have a happy holiday season. Peachtree Residential has pledged to sponsor 10 kids as a company and many of our employees haven choose to sponsor additional children as part of our donation.” He continues, “Our Atlanta team would love to get the entire community involved and we invite you to come join us at the Walmart on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta on Friday, December 13 at 2 p.m.”
There will be tables set up for people to choose a child or children to sponsor. After a child is picked, everyone willing to donate to the cause goes inside and shops for the items on the list. After paying, all that’s left is to deliver the toys off to the sponsoring WSB table and watch as another foster child gets checked off the list, signifying one more kid with presents on Christmas.
