Agency Holiday Schedule

Many of you have asked what our schedule will be like for the holiday season SO here is our schedule....

We will maintain our normal hours through Friday December 18th.

The week of Christmas and the week of New Years (12/21-1/1) we will be in and out of the office as needed, therefore there will NOT be someone at the agency during normal office hours. We will be checking our emails daily and any emergency phone calls can be made to our cell phones.

We will resume our normal office hours on Monday January 4, 2010.

If you have any questions feel free to email either of us.


Giving Back UPDATE

Just wanted to let you know, we are accepting more wrapping paper and board games through Friday of this week 12-11-09. Please feel free to come by and drop off your donations!

It is hard to believe that we are less than 2 months from Christmas! This has been a great year for the agency. We are so proud of the continued growth and we feel so blessed! As we enter the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season we are reminded that there are many who not are so blessed. Last year, we gave back by donating Christmas wrapping paper and board games to children in foster care. We are asking you again this year to partner with us in providing these items. Drop off your donations at J Pervis Talent anytime Monday through Friday from 10:00 to 5:00 by December 11. Thank you for your willingness to give during this holiday season to some of Georgia's foster kids!

Giving Back: Two Williams Homes

The Two Williams Build is now up on our online registration system. Please ask your group members to use it to sign up for the build. The process is short and sweet. Four easy steps are provided below.

1) Visit our volunteer registration website at .

2) For volunteers who have not used this website before: Click Register and then select a user name and password, enter the join code 2Williams (this join code is important because it enables your group members to view the sign up information specific to your build) and input contact information. NOTE: At this point volunteers have not signed up for your build yet. They have only created an account.

For people who volunteered on this build last year: Enter your user name and password and then click Sign In.

3) Click the Sign Up button under Upcoming Events to sign up for the Two Williams Build day(s) of interest

4) Click Sign Out

After volunteers sign up they will receive a confirmation email with links for Atlanta Habitat background information, Rules to Build By, Release & Waiver, and map & directions to the build site. As the group coordinator, you will have administrative access to the site so you can see a list of all the volunteers who have signed up for your volunteer days and easily communicate with them (either individually or as a group) via email. The attached document provides simple instructions for how that works.

Thank you very much. Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information. Happy Thanksgiving!
