Hope Tree helps put gifts under the tree for children in foster care, adults and children with developmental disabilities, and children of refugee families that have recently arrived in the United States. But to do this, we need your help. The Hope Tree program exists through collaboration with local businesses and congregations, whose members generously donate toys, gift cards, books, clothing and other requested essential items. If you are interested in having your business or congregation sponsor LSG children for Christmas, please contact Tim Swenson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Stone Mountain, GA 30083
The Lutheran MLK Day of Service is co-sponsored by the Lutheran Theological Center of Atlanta and the Southeastern Synod of the ELCA and it benefits refugees and immigrants served by Lutheran Services of Georgia. Join others to donate and pack rice and other staple food items to stock the pantries of newly arrived refugees resettled by LSG in Georgia. Or make a card of hope and encouragement to send to a detainee in immigration detention. Also come to engage in learning and action about how you can help welcome refugees from around the world.
Volunteers from faith and community groups are invited to serve on MLK Day 2017 by participating in service projects to benefit refugees resettled by Lutheran Services of Georgia and immigrants in detention served by LSG's Friends in Hope Detention Visitation program.

Did you know that 28.2 percent of Georgia's children live in homes at risk for hunger? That means that 1 in 4 ofGeorgia's kids don't know where their next meal is coming from.
Many populations that Lutheran Services of Georgia serves are deeply impacted by hunger in their daily lives. LSG helps make sure that these families have the food they need, and the money raised through Hunger Walk helps make it possible.
Registration will be available in early 2017.
