Diaper Drive for Family Advancement Ministries

From mid October to mid November the Macon office held a “Diaper Drive” to benefit Family Advancement Ministries (FAM), a social service organization in Macon providing assistance to families based on individual case management.  Assistance includes direct services, prenatal services, education (prenatal, parenting, financial and health & safety), and Hispanic outreach services.  Direct services include financial assistance for disconnection/eviction, clothing for newborns up to six years, diapers, maternity clothes, layettes, car seats, and cribs.  All direct service clients are required to participate in the education program.

On Monday November 24th, Rick Alibozek (Board member for Family Advancement Ministries) and Meredith Lipson delivered the diapers to Sister Roberta Treppa, Director of FAM at the offices of Family Advancement Ministries.

M&J Spreads Christmas Joy with Toys for Tots

unnamed

This year, the M&J Atlanta office is a Toys for Tots drop site! You’ll see the box in the front lobby next to the Christmas tree.

Each year the Atlanta Toys For Tots campaign distributes over 770,000 toys to 385,000 children, making this the largest campaign in the United States.

And they need our help!

While you’re out doing your family’s Christmas shopping, please consider adding one more gift to your list: a new, unwrapped Christmas present for a child in need. For many less fortunate families, this may be the only gift they receive this year.

Toys Needed:

  • We need toys appropriate for boys and girls from newborn to 12 years old.
  • All toys must be new and unwrapped.
  • We always run short of toys for ages 0 to 2 and 10 and older.  Suggested toys for the older children include makeup kits, hair dryers, watches, colognes, perfumes, basketballs, footballs and other sporting equipment.
  • Bicycles are always in very high demand and our supplies never meet this demand. Please keep in mind that we cannot distribute a bicycle without a helmet.

Please make sure to bring in your new, unwrapped toy before December 16th!
