9th Grade Student Ambassador and graduate of Atlanta Youth Academy

"Hello!  My name is Jessica, and Homeless at Heart (HAH) is a great organization!  I had donated to HAH several years through my school, Atlanta Youth Academy (AYA).  During the 2015-2016 school year, I was fortunate enough to lead the effort for HAH at AYA through the 8th Grade Community Service Group.  Our group got the whole school pumped up for donating boxes to the homeless, and we collected 214 boxes.  My family and I volunteered at 7 Bridges during that Valentine’s Day weekend, and it felt so awesome to see the residents enjoying the boxes that were delivered to them that day.  They were so excited—especially the kids.  Seeing their joy made me happy!"

8th Grade Student Ambassador, Westminster Schools, Atlanta

"Hi, I'm Scott, a student at Westminster. I gladly helped HAH in 2016 by introducing the project to the Westminster Middle School, where students and faculty eagerly embraced the project. The best part about this service project is the kids' enthusiasm creating gifts for the homeless, which almost matches the joy of those receiving the gift boxes. Truly magical!"
