Spreading Joy with Holidays Toys
Every holiday season, Beats the Streets, an Atlanta based non profit dedicated to ending homelessness, collects new toys for girls and boys living in homelessness. You can help by donating new, unwrapped toys in the 26th floor lobby by the tree. We will be collecting toys until Friday, December 16th.
We then need volunteers to pass out the toys to homeless children at the Salvation Army in Atlanta as well as spread Holiday cheer with fun games. The event is Saturday, December 17th from 2:00-4:00pm.
As this event is on a Saturday, you will be responsible for your own transportation!
