“Peachtree Road had our back before anyone else did and has been doing the hard work with us to support at risk kids in our city.” – Sgt. Jones, Police Athletic League.
For close to 20 years, Peachtree Road has supported the Atlanta Police Athletic League in multiple ways: financial gifts, food and sports equipment drives, facilities improvement, tutoring, sponsorships, rent assistance for families and lots of advice when starting new programs. It all started when a rookie officer came to the church asking for toys for Christmas. That young officer kept coming back with his pleas for the kids. Before long Atlanta PAL was one of our partners in Local Outreach. So many children and parents have been given hope through the partnership between PAL and Peachtree Road.
As one mother said as she left the church with tears running down her cheeks after shopping at Christmas Kindness, “thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus.”
