Tools 4 School

Tools 4 School

ATLANTA -- Can you believe it’s just a few short weeks before the school bus will be rounding the block again?

Act Together Ministries needs your help to collect school supplies for children in need in five north metro counties: Forsyth, N Fulton, Cobb, Cherokee, and Gwinnett. With your help, we will set up our 4th annual school supply “store” that allows children the opportunity to shop for their own school supplies. The children love picking out their favorite color backpack, selecting pencils with a preferred cartoon character, and getting the exact items listed on their school supply list. Parents in our program contribute $5 toward the event so that they have the honor of taking ownership. No one wants to wait in a hand out line and be labeled “Needy.” In addition to receiving school supplies, the children get haircuts, medical/dental screening, lunch, and enjoy crafts, games and other fun activities.

Alpharetta family relocates to Africa to serve poor children, Heart for Africa

Alpharetta family relocates to Africa to serve poor children, Heart for Africa

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Janine Maxwell brings hope to people.  That is what she has been doing for the past six years, and the objective of her nonprofit aid organization, Heart for Africa –to deliver hope to the poor and vulnerable.

But the marketing exec turned humanitarian, professes that she struggled with living in Alpharetta—the affluent and picturesque community, she, husband Ian and two children (daughter Chloe –now 16, son Spencer –now 18) relocated to from Canada, in order to raise awareness and support for the organization.    

 “Beautiful but very different,” she best summarizes it, Maxwell felt uprooted trading the securities of her CEO-standard, Canadian lifestyle –and free healthcare, for the South; however it was a move that was both necessary and favorable.
