Project Valentine delivers more than 100 gift bags to adults with disabilities every Valentine’s Day.

The Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency will be collecting donations for Project Valentine until Feb. 8.

Some of the items that the Cherokee Recreation and Parks agency are asking for include the following: chap stick, lotion, sticky notes, pens, markers, word searches, any art or music activities as well as candy (sugar free and regular) and any holiday related items.

The items that are collected through these donations will be made into goody bags and delivered to Empower Cherokee.

Empower Cherokee is an organization that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through employment and social connections with the supports necessary to achieve their dreams. They also support individual families in need.

Donations may be dropped off at the Recreation Center located at 7545 Main St., Building 200, Woodstock, GA, 30188.
