Acworth’s Georgia Funeral Care invites our community to join their Christmas in August toy collecting for Operation Toy Soldier

Operation Toy Soldier is a nation wide program of the funeral homes in the Veterans Funeral Care network. Georgia Funeral Care is an active member of this group. Most of the funeral homes in the Veterans Funeral Care network are owned and run by veterans or, ARE the children of veterans. So when we found out about the need, we wanted to help.

We get questions about types of toys needed. A football or soccer ball is a big hit. Barbie Dolls and coloring books are huge. If your 5-10 year old would like it, our kids will love it too.

It is very important to us that you understand that even though Operation Toy Soldier is a nationwide toy drive, all the toys you donate STAY LOCAL. When you donate a toy in the Atlanta area, the toy goes to a soldier’s family in Atlanta.

Drop off bins are located at Georgia Funeral Care (4671 S Main St., Acworth, Acworth Community Center, Northcutt Station Salon (at 4510 S. Main Street) and The Atlanta Ice House, 2600 Prado Lane, Marietta, 30066, for the month of August.Drop off bins for September will be at Georgia Funeral Care and Northcutt Station Salon. Both on Main Street in Acworth.  For more information call 678-574-3016.
