Order Your Holiday Gifts From The Shepherd Center's "Pecans on Peachtree"

Wednesday, November 10, 2010
I came across this great holiday fundraising event sponsored by the Shepherd Center called "Pecans on Peachtree." Since someone I care about deeply is currently staying at the Shepherd Center, I have been looking for ways that myself and everyone can support the center. Since many of you all (and your offices) often order holiday gifts for friends, business connections, etc., I wanted to offer up these "Pecans on Peachtree" as an alternative this year to your traditional gifts that you have given in the past.

Pecans on Peachtree is a beloved holiday fundraising event sponsored by the Auxiliary of Shepherd Center, a private, not-for-profit hospital specializing in medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain and other neuromuscular disorders.

For nearly three decades, Pecans on Peachtree has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund patient-related programs at Shepherd Center through annual holiday sales of delicious pecans, most grown right here in the state of Georgia.
Founded in 1975, Shepherd Center is ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top 10 rehabilitation hospitals in the nation. Shepherd Center is a 132-bed facility. Last year Shepherd admitted 947 people to its inpatient programs and 538 people to its day patient programs. In addition, Shepherd sees more than 6,000 people annually on an outpatient basis.

You can view all their products HERE (and they are all delicious! Yes, I have tried them!)

So I encourage you to order your holiday gifts this year while also contributing to an amazing center that is truly changing peoples lives!
