Most of us take the ability to provide a good meal for Christmas for granted.  Not everyone in our community can say the same. For students and families in the Lanier school cluster, one charitable organization steps up to help provide these families with a Christmas meal.  Horns of Hope serves the students that attend Lanier High School, Lanier Middle School, White Oak Elementary School, Sycamore Elementary School, and Sugar Hill Elementary School.

Horns of Hope is run by four Sugar Hill residents who like to refer to their charity as a gap filler for Lanier cluster counselors.  That means they help where they are needed. For three years, Horns of Hope has been working with school counselors to help provide items like eyeglasses, shoes, food, and school supplies. Their main initiatives each year are school supplies for Lanier High School students and Holiday meals each December.    

This year, Horns of Hope was able to provide 85 families with a complete holiday meal.  These meals included 16-18 lbs turkeys, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce, and yams.  The families were presented with a voucher to redeem at Kroger to receive those items.

Horns of Hope would like to thank all those in the community who have donated to help the children and their families in the Lanier cluster.  Because of those donors, 85 kids and their families will have a much brighter Christmas.
