Providing Thanksgiving meals to families in need in Dahlonega and Lumpkin County, Georgia.

Thankful Hearts

We hope to provide “take and bake” meals to 40 families in need in Dahlonega and Lumpkin County.  The meal consists of everything a family needs to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal together.



Thanksgiving is a special time for families and friends, but it can also be a trying time for budgets. Many families feel the strain on their wallets – maybe it’s your neighbor taking care of her grandchildren, or a family who has lost an income and could use a little help throughout the holiday season.



No matter the circumstance, Thankful Hearts would like to help by giving these families a Thanksgiving Dinner Box with all of the “fixins” (including turkey, ham, stuffing, and more – even dessert!) that they can take home and prepare to their liking in the comfort of their own home while continuing their own Thanksgiving traditions.



If you know of a family in need of assistance this Thanksgiving, please go to our “Nominate a Family” page and download the Family Nomination Form. Families must be residents of Lumpkin County.

Our Gallery

Every year it takes a great team of volunteers on the day to bring everything together, box it up and have it ready to be picked up by the happy families.  Take a look at some of the photos from last year’s Thankful Hearts Pick-Up Day.
