The Atlanta Chapter of Twelve Days, Inc. began with 4 members who were interested in
sharing their blessings with others during the holiday season. With support from the
New York Chapter, Atlanta began establishing their group in the last few months of 2014.
Though hosting a full fundraising event in 2014 was not possible, the members decided
to use their dues to buy gifts for 2 families that included 11 children. Members shopped
for clothing including warm winter items, toys for each child, and a small token for the
parents. After experiencing the joy of giving through Twelve Days, the four members
returned and added 2 new women to the fold in 2015.
The Atlanta Chapter has continued to grow with 19 members and hostesses in 2019
and will host its 6th Party with a Purpose at Upstairs Atlanta this December. Through
support from our sponsors in 2018, we were able to bring Christmas cheer to 75
students and strive to increase our impact this season!
Greetings from the Atlanta Chapter of the Twelve Days of Christmas, Inc. We are thrilled to enter our 6th season and I am honored to serve as our President this year! It is a blessing to be surrounded by 18 passionate members and hostesses who love serving our communities. Our Atlanta Chapter has come quite a long way from our first season.
Our active group of business women, nonprofit professionals, entrepreneurs bring a range of qualities and skills to make our group dynamic and resourceful. Most of all, we are committed to living a life of purpose that brings us together in the most remarkable way!
In 2018, we supported 75 students at Resurgence Hall. We take great pride in bringing the joy of Christmas to children during our gift selection process and meet any miscellaneous needs of families as they arise.
Our accomplishments would not be possible without the generosity we receive from both individuals and corporations in Metro Atlanta. With your love and support we can continue to grow our service and bring wonderful Christmas cheer to those in need this holiday season. Thank you for allowing us to be a blessing to the families we serve!
