Holiday of HEROes (H.O.H.) is H.E.R.O. for Children's annual outreach to provide children infected with and affected by HIV and AIDS with one gift they need and one gift they want during the holiday season. In partnership with other AIDS organizations and hospitals in Georgia,HERO has served as many as 350 children through Holiday of HEROs on an annual basis. Gifts furnished include toys, clothing, books, gift cards, toiletries, coats, blankets, etc. The majority of the children we serve come from low income families, where caregivers often find it difficult to purchase gifts for their children during the holidays. Year after year, parents tell us that without this program, their children would not have received presents for the holidays.
Ninety-five percent of our service population lives at or below the poverty line. Without this program, many of our children would not receive any presents during the holidays. Our goal is to reach at least 200 children this year. The majority of the kids who benefit from HOH live in metro Atlanta, and its success is largely dependent upon individual and group volunteers, as well as sufficient in-kind donations.
