In America, one in every eight children experience hunger every day. Each year over 20,000 cases of child abuse are reported in Georgia. As a result, there are over 9,000 children in foster systems in Georgia today. The largest contributing factors to these awful statistics are poverty and homelessness. The 124 Group is excited to announce their partnership with Uniting Hope 4 Children to support foster children and their families.
UH4C is a local, faith based, non-profit organization founded by Wayne Naugle of the First Baptist Church of Loganville, in hopes to unite, train and inspire foster families. Wayne and his wife Kelli started UH4C after they began the journey of rescuing an abandoned baby girl from Atlanta. The Naugles realized how many children experience abandonment, so they began this wonderful charity to help. During the month of April our #GotBabyFood campaign was a great success with the help of our clients and salon family! Donations poured in and The 124 Group was able to donate hundreds of baby food jars and cereal boxes to UH4C!
Thousands of local families face not having enough food for everyone. Together we can change this horrid statistic and make sure that no child is going to bed hungry. UH4C not only ensures meals, but they also help provide the proper essentials and guidance families need in order to offer foster children a better future. Through the month of June, The 124 Group will be collecting baby bottles and formulas to continue supporting the great leaders at UH4C.
Working together is the only way to end hunger and help children in need! We’d like to thank you, our donors, who have been the biggest part of this effort, for your generous gifts. Whether it’s a single jar of baby food or an entire case of cereal, every donation is making a difference. But the work continues! We hope you will find it in your hearts to join our efforts to fight childhood hunger. Donations will be accepted at Salon 124, as well as all of our Salon 124 and Genesis by 124 locations! Thank you all once again!
