How do we do it? Mr. Tom’s Heart screens and matches generous donors of food and sundries with deserving charities in need, then we arrange and manage pickups and deliveries. Some recent activities include:

Mr. Tom’s Heart has been busy in 2023 and we have not let Covid slow us down — people more than ever have needed extra support and we have been there to lend a helping hand. Mr. Tom is still volunteering 7 days a week with the help of his fabulous volunteers. Some ways we are helping:

  1. Giving out about 100 bouquets of donated flowers every week, thanks to Trader Joe’s.
  2. Delivering boxes of chips, crackers and fruit bars to every floor at Scottish Rite Hospital every week for the heroes.
  3. Purchasing and delivering Papa John’s pizzas each Saturday to the Aflac Cancer center at Scottish Rite. We also take pizzas to the ER and hospital security.
  4. We take weekly donations from Costco to the Ronald McDonald Houses and give gift cards for any purchases that RMH needs to purchase for the families.
  5. Donated various sundries and food from Costco are given to RMH and Calvary Children’s Home.
  6. Solidary Sandy Springs is given breads, cakes, donuts, etc from Publix every week as well as flowers from Trader Joe’s.
  7. Plaid Enterprises donates arts & crafts to The Zone at Scottish Rite, as well as the art department.

As you can see, we are staying busy and taking care of people and families who really need us. We still have no employees and have kept a very low overhead. This is where we need your help. Anything you can give will go a long way to help more people in need in our community and the surrounding area. Thank you in advance for any help you can give us!

Mr. Tom won an Emmy award!! Watch his recent appearances on 11Alive, Steve, and NBC’s Sunday Today Show!

Tom has volunteered for many years and was the first to be placed on our Volunteer Hall of Fame. Working with our "Bread Gang" delivering products from our community vendors to the center, the next thing we all noted was the increase and variety of the donations coming into the center due to his due diligence. Tom gives new meaning to the term "multi-tasking." He can follow up on several issues, all the while displaying admirable patience, care, and concern.
