Parents are in need of so much; Baskets of Love, allows the Kory Foundation to assist so many parents. With your support and donations we can do so much more so we hope seeing what we do will speak to your heart. The Kory Foundation Inc. welcomes you join us by giving your support in any way that you can.
There are so many ways that we can give back to the community and so many ways we can embrace the ideas of others on better ways to give back. The Kory Foundation Inc. is dedicated to lifting up our community through the Outreach Program. Last year we started our program in the Five Points/Atlanta area but due to changes made in that area, we are now looking for new areas to continue this program. If you know of an area where our services are needed, please contact us. As we grow, it is a great part of our mission to touch all in need of our assistance.
Also, we welcome your perishable, individually wrapped items. Simply give us a call and we will make the needed arrangements to receive your donations.
