For the past 10 years, Secret Santa Over Atlanta (SSOA) has spread joy and holiday cheer to families in need in the metro area. SSOA has helped single parents who saw no light at the end of the tunnel, families traumatized by the diagnosis of cancer, recovering addicts trying to make ends meet and families fleeing genocide and natural disasters from foreign countries. Our non-profit has experienced firsthand the difference generosity makes.
SSOA was able to help 6 families in need this year. Three families had suffered through cancer, two families just needed a little boost to get through the season, and one family contacted the organization last minute for assistance (a 22-year-old raising 4 young siblings).
This year, the organization had the most donations of any season - all 130 of the Amazon Wishlist items were donated and fulfilled and more than 20 cash donors enabled us to purchase additional food items, gift cards and tools. All thanks to SSOA's amazing friends and families!
