Donate to Give-A-Gobble today and make a difference

in the life of a local family or individual in need this Thanksgiving.

Give-A-Gobble is a community food-support program

Give-A-Gobble is presented as part of the annual Ecumenical Celebration. 

This year’s featured organization is Simple Needs GA.

At our spiritually-fulfilling, inspiring, humorous, and music-filled Ecumenical Celebration, we come together as one loving family to collect funds to purchase turkeys and Thanksgiving dinners for our neighbors in need. The Give-A-Gobble program initially grew out of a grassroots effort to help impoverished families in the Cabbagetown neighborhood and the Oakland Food Bank in downtown Atlanta. It has been two decades since Give-A-Gobble was born, and today, the need for support in many of our communities exists far beyond just that small Cabbagetown neighborhood.

Over the years, Give-A-Gobble has provided support to the Center for Family Resources, Families First, Family Promise, Food2Kids, Genesis Shelter, Helping Hand Foundation, Inner-city Muslim Action Network (IMAN), JF&CS, Jubilee Partners, New American Pathways, Must Ministries, North Fulton Charities, Pianos for Peace, and United Military Care, Inc.

This year, we are thrilled to feature Simple Needs GA whose mission is to meet the needs of children, people experiencing homelessness, and others in need. While many, many agencies that are focused on serving vulnerable populations are doing great work in our communities, they mostly focus on basic needs like food, clothing, shelter and job training. Simple Needs GA focuses on meeting other types of needs left unmet, including providing shoes or furniture or helping people connect with the services they need to help improve their lives. For instance, some of the programs that Simple Needs GA offers include: 1) Simple Household Needs; 2) My Birthday Matters; 3) Shoe Them Love; 4) Spirit of Christmas; 5) Comfort Kits; 6) Simply Sheltered; and 7) Uniforms for Excellence. 

Give-A-Gobble provides support to organizations and programs like Simple Needs GA each year, and this year, more than ever, families and individuals are experiencing greater needs.

Please know that 100% of your donation goes toward the purchase of turkeys, food staples, and Thanksgiving dinners to those needing hope and a helping hand.

Each Thanksgiving season, Give-A-Gobble donates to many organizations that directly provide food support to individuals and families in need. Any contributed amount is appreciated. With our Ecumenical Celebration being virtual again this year, you can donate to Give-A-Gobble securely online through PayPal by clicking the Donate Button.

Please, ACT NOW, open up your hearts, place a turkey on the table of a family or individual in need, and Give-A-Gobble!
