Our first and now signature program, Amy’s Holiday Party (AHP) is a winter celebration serving children and families in need from 40+ social service agencies around Atlanta, including homeless shelters, foster care networks, and refugee centers.
Typically, AHP provides carnival games, craft projects, DJ entertainment, a full meal, holiday cheer, a picture with Santa, and a visit to our gift room where every guest chooses two brand new presents to take home. Guests are paired with teen volunteers so they can enjoy the party while their parents and agency representatives get a break in an area created especially for adult guests.
Now in its 26th year, CCC adapted Amy’s Holiday Party in order to provide a “Covid-19 friendly” teen volunteer opportunity while continuing to deliver the holiday gifts, meals, smiles and FUN that our community has come to depend on. In order to meet the individual safety requirements of our partner agencies, CCC delivered a custom Amy’s Holiday Party to 19 individual organizations.
2020 has been an extremely difficult year for the organizations we partner with, and many of our contacts report that many of the services they rely on are unavailable. To help meet their specific needs and still provide some holiday fun, Amy’s Holiday Party 2020 delivered:
• A Santa hat
• An arts & craft activity
• Smile Bags containing personal care items
• And other surprises!
