Loans By Kathy: Simple Needs GA

Simple Needs GA


Simple Needs GA is a non-profit founded by my friend Brenda Rhodes.  I first met Brenda while we were volunteering for a Share Our Strength event several years ago.  It is easy to get caught up in her passion for this mission.  There is a huge need to help those in difficult situations.  

Here is a list of the programs currently offered by Simple Needs GA:

  • Providing brand new shoes for children
  • Providing household necessities such as laundry detergent and cleaning supplies
  • Providing a duffle bag with full size toiletries to those living in homeless shelters
  • Supplying tents and sleeping bags, along with other essentials for those living in the woods.
  • Providing birthday presents and celebrations for disadvantaged kids on their birthday.

Personally, I was cleaning out a closet when I realized how many items I hadn't used in years.  I started a pile for donation and before I knew it, I found comforters, sheets, blankets, afghans, candles etc enough to fill the trunk of my car.  I know that they will be appreciated by someone that needs these items.

Kathy, I was putting together my "to do" list for this weekend and one of the items was to make a goodwill run and a stop at the food pantry to drop off donations to both!
