A local church has a longtime project that gets coats, blankets and other necessities to Atlanta’s homeless.
The Cathedral of Christ the King in Sharpsburg has begun the current collection of blankets, coats, sweat shirts/pants, socks, flannel shirts, hoodies, and shoes. Dawn Cramer of Newnan and Rayna Dickerson of Senoia have been involved in homeless outreach throughout the years on behalf of the CTK congregation.
“This year the two will be taking items to the men and women who have nowhere to stay except under bridges, in alleyways or in the streets,” said Bishop David Epps, pastor.
“Items are being gathered at the church between now and New Year’s Day and are being distributed as they arrive,” he said. Epps said he has urged the congregation to “clean out your closets and bring items for distribution for, 'Inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of these, my brethren, you have done it unto me.'"
