Our first and now signature program, Amy’s Holiday Party (AHP) has served the Atlanta community since 1995. Now in its 27th year, AHP is a winter celebration serving children and families 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.
In 2020, 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.
CCC looks forward to delivering holiday smiles in 2021! To help meet the specific needs of our agency partners and provide some holiday fun, Amy’s Holiday Party 2021 will include:
• A Santa hat
• An arts & craft activity
• Smile Bags containing personal care items
• And other surprises!
