The Children's Center for Hope & Healing is looking for secret Santas. This wonderful non-profit organization  is dedicated to breaking the cycle of child sexual abuse and preventing the victimization of children.


If you, your office, your Sunday School Class, or your family would like to provide Christmas for one of our

children or one of our families, please call us for a wish list.  Every week, we see children whose shoes are

too small for their feet, whose legs have outgrown their Levi’s, or who greedily devour our snack supply

because they don’t have enough to eat at home.  

 

These families need our help providing clothing—winter jackets, blue jeans, sweaters, and pajamas as well as

ATLANTA – One man from southwest Atlanta has added a second Georgia Lottery win to his pockets. Delma Kinney, who will celebrate his 51st birthday Dec. 5, won a $1 million prize playing the instant game Super Millions.

In 2008 Kinney won $1 million playing another instant game. The single father of three set aside a portion of his winnings to save for their college education.

With his recent win, Kinney plans to donate a portion to charity.

Chevron Food Mart, 2959 Campbellton Road S.W. in Atlanta, sold the lucky ticket.

“I was just out and stopped for cold medicine,” he explained. “I sat in the car with the ticket, and when I saw the matching numbers, I knew.”

Super Millions is a Georgia Lottery instant game loaded with cash prizes of up to $5 million.
