Peachtree Corners Business Association donates Check to Because One MattersThe Peachtree Corners Business Association (PCBA) awarded a check for $500 to Because One Matters at our September 22, 2022 PCBA Business After Hours Annual Charity Event!
Because One Matters is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to positively influence the trajectory of foster children and young adults from economically disadvantaged communities, providing hope, dignity, empowerment, mentorship, and economic opportunity to foster children and young adults from economically disadvantaged communities.
These funds will be used for the Because One Matters Wrapped in Love Foster Closet to allow foster parents and parents from underserved households to shop (free) for new and gently used clothing items. The Wrapped in Love Closet aims to provide the children we serve with the gift of hope for a better future and show them that their community supports and loves them. Funds will be used to purchase new underwear, socks & gloves, scarfs for our Wrapped in Love closet.
