Student Council is excited to help the non-profit YIMBY Georgia, which is about creating and nurturing a movement for community and compassion for our homeless neightbors. "You know that thing 'NIMBY' - not in my backyard?" Well, that's not us: YIMBY - Yes! In My Backyard. YIMBY seeks to inspire and show others how they can make a difference in their own communities and neighborhoods - their own backyards.
With the economics of the pandemic, there are more and more homeless people in the Atlanta area. We are collecting blankets, tents, sleeping bags, and hygiene items (deodorant, nail clippers, body wipes, etc.) So clean out the closet or buy something at the Dollar Store and bring it to the box by the front doors to the school.
What else can you do to help? You can go to YIMBY's website (https://yimbygeorgia.org) and donate through the Amazon registry. You can also watch a video about how you can make a hygiene kit to give to people in need that you encounter.
Thank you in advance for helping this important cause!
