Time2Give: Partnership for Families, Children, and Adults


While we’ve been striving this weekend to stay on top of all the online deals for your Christmas shopping – I want to switch gears now to remind everyone about another important part of preparing for Christmas. Giving.

Heidi has found another great place to donate for us – and this one takes items you may not normally think about – like weedeaters!  Thank you so much Heidi – for keeping us on track during this season of giving!

Another great place to donate is the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults. They have helped over 74,000 people in Tennessee, North Alabama, and Northwest Georgia. They are a social service agency that provides services such as Family Violence and Sexual Assault, Pregnancy Counseling, Adoption & Foster Care, and Services for the Elderly. This is a great option if you have gently used furniture or other household items that you no longer want. They have put together a wish list, though they said they will take things not listed as well.   Here are some things they are in need of right now.  (Click Read More to see the whole list)
