Lenox Square announces winter clothing and shoe drive for the holidays

On Monday, Lenox Square announced a winter clothing and shoe drive to benefit patients at Atlanta’s Shepherd Center. The drive will remain active throughout the months of December and January. Shoppers can donate new or gently used clothing and shoes at the Mall Management Office on the lower level of Lenox Square.

“We’re pleased to participate in a holiday clothing and shoe drive to benefit patients at one of the nation’s leading rehabilitation hospitals,” Robin Suggs, Lenox Square’s General Manager, said in a press release. “As a native Atlantan, I am very familiar with the decades of good work provided by Shepherd Center. Lenox Square is honored to assist in this initiative.”

Founded in 1975, the Shepherd Center is a private not-for-profit hospital that specializes in treating patients with spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis and other neuromuscular conditions.

“We are so thankful for Lenox Square’s generosity and support during this holiday season,” Shanna Thorpe, cause and community engagement manager at Shepherd Center, said in the press release. “Our patients will greatly benefit from these items and the kindness shown by the community.”

The Shepherd Center is currently fundraising for its Pursuing Possible campaign to enhance the center’s quality of care in a number of ways.

“Shepherd Center is pursuing our most ambitious campaign yet,” the center’s website said. “We’re adding more beds and buildings; we’re expanding and advancing neurorehabilitation in ways once considered unimaginable. To ensure Shepherd Center remains the premier destination for catastrophic care and rehabilitation, we’ve set an ambitious goal and we need you to help us get there.”

Donations to the Shepherd Center can be made online here.
