Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb, an organization working with a network of 13 churches and synagogues in Dunwoody and Sandy Springs to provide temporary housing, meals and assistance for homeless families with children, recently received a $3,089 check from Dunwoody United Methodist Church’s Girl Scout Troop #27436. 

This troop of 14, 8th grade girls has been working with Family Promise at DUMC for several years – they have set up and taken down bedrooms, hosted families, babysat children, made meals and even helped with Christmas decorations and food for the families at other congregations. Last fall, the girls decided to raise money for Family Promise with the hopes of providing enough funds to make a significant difference to those in the program. They created and sold “It’s All Good In The ‘Wood” Dunwoody t-shirts with 100% of the profits going to Family Promise. The girls presented Family Promise with the check Sunday, Feb 22, for their Girl Scout Silver Award project.

It’s not too late to get your Dunwoody shirt! Sales will continue through March 21. To order your “It’s All Good In The ‘Wood” Dunwoody shirt, please visit:
