The City of Kennesaw is partnering with local faith-based and civic organizations in a Christmas outreach initiative called HOPE City Project. The project seeks to collect clothing items, toys and small electronics and provide them to people in the need in our community.
For the next three weeks, new and gently worn clothes, shoes, purses, toys and small electronics can be dropped off at various locations around the city. On Saturday, December 22, community members of all ages who are having difficulty making ends meet are invited to the Martha J. Moore Center, 6697 Keene St., to select five free items. The goal is to be able to serve more than 1,000 people with 15,000 pieces of merchandise valued at more than $75,000 in the biggest one-day give back in the city’s history.
“This city has always come together to help those in need,” said Dallas White, pastor of Kennesaw’s City Church and organizer of the initiative. “We encourage everyone to go through their closets and pack up anything that doesn’t fit or they no longer need. We can give hope this holiday season to the hurting in our community.”
A complete list of drop-off locations as well as other details about the project can be found at www.ChristmasinKennesaw.com. Donations will be accepted up until December 21.
