“Homeless receive gifts for the holidays in Metro-Atlanta,” South Metro Neighbor

McKesson Technologies GiftsNeighbor Newspapers reported on clients of Decatur-based CaringWorks, one of the largest providers of supportive housing for those experiencing homelessness in the metropolitan Atlanta area, receiving items from their Christmas wish list thanks to generous donations from the team at McKesson Technologies.

“I feel appreciated and like you care. Not just giving the gifts, but you actually took the time out of your busy schedule to come and bless us – not just with things, but with your presence,” said CaringWorks client Shelly Brisbon. “I get emotional because sometimes people forget about us because we are going through this journey.”

Through the McKesson Cares program, CaringWorks clients were provided items from two lists: a needs list and a wish lists. Not surprisingly, even their wish lists were items most of us take for granted. Deliveries will continue this week to clients throughout the metro-Atlanta area.

“We are so grateful to McKesson for fulfilling CaringWorks client wishes through McKesson Cares. I had the privilege of watching clients come alive today, and the gifts brought them to tears,” said CaringWorks Director of External Affairs Barbara Peters. “What they felt was not just the beauty of the items they received, but they felt the love of the community. For people who are living on the edge, that is an incredible blessing.”
