Each year thousands of Metro-Atlanta school children go through the cold winter season without the appropriate clothing to keep them warm. According to Atlanta’s Homeless Task Force, children under the age of 9 years old are the fastest growing homeless population. Here in Atlanta, children are the poorest–there are more children that live in poverty in Atlanta than any other city in the U.S. For Mindi Coleman, Founder of the Keeping Kids Warm Project (KKWP), addressing the needs of Atlanta’s underprivileged children is a top priority.
Created in 2006 and because of the warm and generous heart of our supporters, the KKWP has kept over 3,000 children warm. We will continue to work to ensure that Atlanta’s underprivileged children, receive new hats and gloves and nutritious snacks, such as oatmeal, to help them keep warm and healthy during the frigid winter season.
This winter, the 6th Annual Keeping Kids Warm Project will help keep 500 children warm with a new hat and glove set.
In order to do this, KKWP needs your help with:
500 NEW hat & glove sets, 1000 packs of instant oatmeal (each child receives 2 packs), 1000 packs of hot chocolate (each child receives 2 packs), 500 candy canes, 300 bottled waters, Pizza for 300 children
The annual KKWP event will be hosted at the NFL/YET Boys & Girls Club.
