Right in the Feels

HNL exists for the purpose of making people's lives better.  We want to be involved in projects where we can make a real impact. In 2012, HNL set out to help a local hospice patient keep the power company from shutting off the heat.  HNL paid the bill until spring.  Keeping our donations local, HNL worked with a local elementary school counselor to ensure lower income students received an ice cream at lunch, just like everyone else.  When we learned some of these same kids go without snacks, we made sure teachers had extras to give the next week.  We've teamed up with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta on multiple projects.  On Halloween in 2014, HNL threw a pizza party for the entire cancer and blood disorder unit at CHOA.  It was a large delivery and a huge success.  In 2015, CHOA asked for art supplies and HNL delivered.  High quality art supplies were collected and delivered to Hughes Spalding at Grady.  In 2016 we learned that kids in the ICU can only use new books, we collected and delivered in a big way.  In the spring of 2016 HNL learned of an Atlanta Mission need at their women's shelter, My Sisters House.  We delivered a carload of women's hygiene products which were split between the residents and the day center outreach facilities.  In 2017 we started The Dignity Store, a free store inside schools where kids can obtain needed hygiene products in a private and dignified way.  We have locations in Tyrone, Fayetteville, East Point, Atlanta, and Griffin. At the end of 2017 HNL learned about a local mom who didn't have reliable transportation so we took on the challenge of purchasing the family a golf cart. It was an awesome project! We collaborated with Golf Rider to make sure the family's trips to the grocery store were much easier!  We love to support local causes and we love big ideas!
