Northwest’s Newnan team has continued to look for ways to support our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Though our ways of serving others look different during these times, the Newnan Family has found creative ways to help community organizations they work closely with throughout the year.
In August, the Newnan team put together a small package for each girl in the Angel House. The gift included a personal journal, letter from the team, coloring pages of their favorite animal or sports team, poems with writing prompts, and one dinner conversation starter! Along with each personal gift, the team gifted the Freedom Writers movie and a gift card to get ice cream party supplies to enjoy while watching the movie!
This creative idea was put together by the team to support and honor the young women of Angels House. Angels House provides a safe, nurturing home for teen girls in crisis. Though the team was not able to hand deliver the gift, they were able to leave it on the doorstep to respect the COVID-19 boundaries.
The team has enjoyed creating a relationship with the Angel House and are always looking for new things they can do with the organization. The girls were so grateful for the small gift and to everyone who takes time to be part of their lives! The Newnan team plans to continue to volunteer and donate to the Angel House. We are thankful for our Newnan’s team desire to help those around them!

The Newnan Good Deed Team has a love for animals! They have been partnering with the Newnan Coweta Humane Society throughout 2020. The team came up with a fun idea to raise money for NCHS – to raise money to donate, whoever was able to give or raise the largest donation could pie a Manager in the face. Our Newnan team sure knows how to have fun!
The fundraising began in March, but due to COVID-19, the team is unable to be together to pie a Manager at the moment. That did not stop the Newnan team! They have continued to raise money and donations, along with some teammates donating toys, to deliver to the NCHS team in May.
Angela, the GDT Ambassador for Newnan, delivered the funds and toys raised to NCHS. Angela believes the timing could not have been better since it is cat season, so the donation will help cover an adoption fee, formula for kittens, or other needs. “We have been so blessed to help such a great organization and watch the amazing things they do on a daily basis. It has been an honor becoming a part of their team and help in areas that we are able,” said Angela.
The Newnan team is still looking forward to being able to pie a Manager once social distancing restrictions have been safely lifted. The rest of the Northwest Family cannot wait to see those photos! In the meantime, the Newnan GDT is going to continue to support the NCHS and their other community organizations any way they’re able while maintaining CDC guidelines.
