|We Need Your Help this Summer!
It’s hard to believe, but we’re nearing the end of another school year. If you know what it’s like to keep one teenager occupied during the summer, imagine what it’s like to have 39 boys and girls living with you! Many of our kids who are old enough will be working summer jobs, but during their downtime, we’d like to provide some special experiences. You can help by donating tickets/passes to some of their favorite venues including:
Six Flags Over Georgia
As always, monetary donations are a big help and can be used toward our Activity fund. You can make donations online at www.ccyakids.org. We also have some season-specific in kind donation needs such as swimsuits, flip flops, beach towels, sunscreen, and individually wrapped snacks.
Andretti Indoor Karting & Games
Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park
Mountasia Family Funcenter
Fun Junction USA
Dave & Buster’s
Sparkles Roller Skating Rink
AMC, Regal, or NCG Movie Theatre

Giving Back at Local Nursing Home
Our kids recently volunteered at the Douglasville Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center. They colored Easter pictures with the residents and held conversations with them. Our boys even provided some entertainment! The CCYA Choir sang “He Still Loves Me” and several of the kids danced, including a great performance of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal”! The real highlight came when one of the young men danced with a 90+ year old resident named Mildred.
The staff at the nursing home said they have never had young teens come visit and they hope we will return. Our kids had a blast and are looking forward to going back. We are so proud of them and the impact they made by brightening someone else’s day.
We are always looking for special opportunities for our kids to give back in the community. They enjoy feeling that they’re not always the ones in need of help, but that they’re also capable of giving help. If you have a volunteer opportunity that might be a good fit for our kids, please contact Kimie Tinsley at email@example.com, or (770)333-9447 ext. 103.
