Project HeartBeat & Covid-19
The Raise Me Up Foundation recognized that from time to time, events like natural disasters, such as fires, floods or tornadoes call for the local community to be able to respond efficiently and deliberately “in a heartbeat.” Therefore, the foundation created “Project HeartBeat: Responding to the Immediate Needs of Our Youth” as a plan of action to provide temporary, but immediate help to the affected youth in our community. Through this project, needed supplies and funding could be provided rapidly to those youth directly affected by a catastrophic event.
Based upon the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Project HeartBeat has been activated. After consulting with the local community and school authorities, the Raise Me Up Foundation has identified an immediate need for our foster care children and the McKinney Vento (homeless) youth.
To meet this crisis head-on, the Raise Me Up Foundation is collecting goods and items in need starting Saturday, March 21, 2020. Donations can be dropped off at McDonough Presbyterian Church (427 McGarity Road, McDonough GA 30253; Monday through Thursday between 9am and 4pm)
Needed toiletries and conveniences include:
- Laundry Baskets
- Laundry Detergent
- Towels and Washcloths
- Shampoo and Conditioner
- Body Soap
- Toothpaste and Tooth Brush
- Sanitary Products
- Disinfecting Wipes
- Hand Sanitizer
- First Aid Kits including Band-aids
Help offset financial burdens created by the pandemic, monetary donations can also be made using the methods listed above (PayPal, Venmo, Facebook and Company Match). 100% of donations will be forwarded to the families in need through the partnership with Henry County Schools.
Please help us by joining our Project HeartBeat team and providing the support, care, and love for these affected youth of Henry County.
