Mt. Elizabeth Academy would like to invite you to share in the joy of giving each Christmas season. Each year during November and December is particular, we will be supporting Helping Mamas.
Helping Mamas is the baby supply bank of Georgia.
We ask you to look through the list of items and decide what would be the perfect gift for your family to donate should you choose to participate. Nothing is too big or too small. All donations are so appreciated and well received.
The items collected will be given to mamas in need during the month of January.
In Georgia, 40% of single female parent households live in poverty. One in three moms has had to choose between diapers and food for their babies, as WIC and Food Stamps don’t cover the purchase of essential baby items such as diapers, wipes, car seats and cribs. Helping Mamas provides costly and much needed baby supplies to organizations serving families in need in order to provide a safe and healthy environment for the families to thrive.
All donations can be brought to Mt. E and we will place them in our reception area. We will be doing this project together with the members of Living Hope Church. For your convenience, you can shop online as well.

We are proud to support the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Kennestone Hospital. NICU describes the high level of care administered to premature infants or those infants with severe or potentially life-threatening conditions.
Introduced more than 50 years ago, neonatal intensive care provides these infants with better temperature support, higher levels of state-of-the-art technology, isolation from infection risk and specialized care. A typical neonatal intensive care unit provides a staff of neonatologists, neonatal nurses, pediatric hospitalists and a variety of other specialists and equipment ranging from incubators to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) to ventilators. Access is limited due to the risk of infection.
All members of the Mt. Elizabeth Academy community contribute to this project through funds generated by tuition, fundraisers, and donations.
Throughout the year we:
- host events and provide meals for families;
- donate items that enhance the care and environment;
- provide gift bags and other items for families.
This project is important to us as we believe in being a supportive part of the community that we live in while supporting the children and families who are struggling or in need.
