crnThis year CRN will feed more than 3,000 homeless children and homeless women with children a Thanksgiving meal. These children live in 134 group homes and shelters throughout 21 metro-Atlanta counties.

In addition to providing a Thanksgiving meal, we want to stock the pantries of the shelters and group homes that CRN serves.

It is imperative that these children do not have to eat hot dogs or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for their Thanksgiving meal! With your help, we will reach our goal of making this a hearty Thanksgiving for metro-Atlanta’s homeless children!

So far we have boxes at Smoke Ring (Sun-Thu 11:30am-10pm, Fri-Sat 11:30am-11pm), Atlanta Movie Tours (11am-5pm daily), ADios Cafe/Poco Mas (8am-10pm), 255 & Spin are also working on having a box!

The full list of what is needed can be found HERE. Please feel free to print this out and post in your building. The final collection will be Fri, Nov 20th so please get everything in by Nov 19th. If there are gift cards that you would like to donate please email and we’ll coordinate pickup.

If you’re interested in helping with sorting the weekend of Nov 20th, distribution to the homes or coordinating your own food drive email Cliff Kinsey at  or call 770-649-7117.

Let’s show those kids an awesome Thanksgiving!!
