February Cause Area
fragile children

The needs of fragile children cover an expansive range of situations. Some fragile children have visible physical challenges or serious illnesses and some might be sight or hearing-impaired while others might struggle with anxiety or have a learning or mental disability.

Additionally, many fragile children are in difficult home situations and in need of basic necessities such as shelter, clothing, food and school support.

Pebble Tossers works with a variety of organizations that support these children based on their needs.

  • Valentine Kits

    Every year we bring some Valentine’s Day cheer to the Sibley Heart Center patients by creating Valentine Kits. The Valentine kits allow the kids at the Sibley Heart Center to make Valentines for their family, nurses, doctors, etc. and to decorate their rooms. We will provide supplies for the kits. This project is perfect for all ages. Click here to register for the project on February 5.

  • Valentine’s Day Cards for InCommunity

    InCommunity provides community-based services and support to people with developmental disabilities and their families. Volunteers can send some Valentine’s Day Love to InCommunity’s Day Program participants by making Valentine Cards. This is a virtual project and cards need to arrive by February 10. It is also an Open Project, if you are not yet a Pebble Tossers member. Click here for all of the details.

  • Virtual Projects for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA)

    For the projects listed below for CHOA click on the link provided for details on how to make a craft kit or meal bags. These items can be provided for the Scottish Rite, Egleston or Hughes Spalding locations.

    Registration Note: We have several dates on our Service Calendar to allow volunteers to register for one of these virtual projects. Since this is a serve from home project, volunteers may complete it any day and time and not just the day you select. The dates and times listed on the calendar allow volunteers to record their service hours. Once registered volunteers will receive an email with all of the details.

    Craft Kit: Throughout the years, CHOA has relied on families, individuals and groups for a variety of donations for their patients and families. Since volunteers can’t visit in person to host activities for the families they are accepting Craft Kits that you can create from home. The Kits help the patients briefly escape their situation by allowing them to focus on creative and fun activities. Click here for details on How to Make a Craft Kit and click here to register

    Meal Bags: Meal bags are a wonderful donation that the staff use to keep their patients and families nourished throughout the entire day. When putting together a meal bag, think breakfast through dinner items with a few snacks. Click here for How to Make a Meal Bag and click here to register.

    Shout Outs for Healthcare Staff: Show Children’s healthcare workers your appreciation and support by donating items for their staff comfort cart. These snack bags will make someone’s day. Click here for details on how to make a Shout Out and click here to register.

  • Kits for Helping Mamas

    Helping Mamas is the baby supply bank for Georgia. They connect helping mamas to mamas needing help. They collect and distribute essential child and baby items throughout Georgia. Volunteers can help virtually by creating a variety of kits for newborns through 12 years old. Click here for more details and to register.

  • Meal Brigade for Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC)

    At this time, due to the medically fragile nature of the families the ARMHC serves and the health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, all on-site volunteer opportunities have been suspended. However volunteers can still support these families by providing a meal that is individually boxed and commercially prepared from a caterer, grocery store deli, or delivered from a restaurant establishment, please click here for more information.
