The holiday season is a special time of the year for the children we serve at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter (GCS). For many of our children it is their first time receiving gifts or enjoying a true holiday meal. Unfortunately, for most of them it may also be the first holiday they will feel safe, cared for and unafraid.
GCS has served over 6,000 abused, neglected or abandoned children during the past 26 years. Each child who walks through our doors has their own special story. As a non-profit shelter we depend on support from the families, churches and businesses in our community to keep our doors open and serve the children who need us most.
For all of our friends that have supported us this past year, we want to thank you. Our success is due to your generous donations and the countless hours of volunteer service. For those of you we are reaching out to for the very first time, we hope that during this holiday season you will take the time to hear our story and be moved to become a GCS friend this coming year.
As we approach the holiday season, it is our hope that you will keep Gwinnett Children’s Shelter on your list of non-profit organizations to support this year. Every dollar will make a difference in a child’s life.
We hope this holiday season brings joy and peace to you and your family.
Happy Holidays from the Children and Staff of GCS!
