Joining Hearts has a ‘Wish List’

Joining Hearts accepting toys for donations

When you hear the words Joining Hearts, the image most likely to pop up in your head is hundreds of people in bathing suits, standing around the Piedmont Park pool enjoying cocktails, as booming beats thunder in the background — all to raise thousands of dollars for AID Atlanta and Jerusalem House.

But Joining Hearts also holds events throughout the year to raise funds for these organizations, as well as its annual Wish List holiday party where guests bring toys for the children at Jerusalem House and gift cards for youths who are part of the teen program at AID Atlanta.

A wish list for the Wish List party is set up at Target stores and available online, said Patrick McCulley, board member of Joining Hearts.
