(SAVANNAH, GA) Park Place Outreach, Inc. Is Hosting a Fundraiser to Outfit Its New Facility

Park Place Outreach, Inc. is hosting a fundraiser and housewarming event to help outfit its new facility currently being built on E. Henry Street. As part of the event, Park Place has made arrangements with several businesses and organizations in the area to host what is called a “Housewarming Registry,” meaning each store will have a list of items needed for Park Place’s new facility and those who want to help can either purchase the items or make donations.
“The house needs many items to make it a home such as kitchen supplies, house goods, linens and electronics just to name a few,” said Elizebeth Overton, fundraiser coordinator for the event.
Businesses who have offered to help with the registry include Linens & Things, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Home Depot, LaZboy, Circuit City and Best Buy. The Savannah College of Art and Design’s Interior Materials II class designed Park Place’s new interior and SCAD’s Graphic Design department designed the fundraising signs.
The public is invited to visit participating stores starting Friday, October 26 through Sunday, October 28 to purchase items from the registry. Contributions can also be sent to Park Place Outreach. Tables and signs will be set up at participating stores and will be manned by Park Place Volunteers and SCAD students.
“We also encourage private citizens and church groups to organize their own “Housewarming Events” for us in their homes or churches,” said Overton.
Those who contribute will receive a tax receipt for their donations and will be invited to attend the “Housewarming Thank You Party” to be held in March at the newly completed home.
Park Place provides emergency shelter and street outreach for adolescents ages 11 through 17 and their families. It is the only agency located within Chatham County that serves youth at no charge who are accepted without a referral to receive help.  With 6000 square feet, the new shelter will accommodate up to 12 youth.    
Park Place opened in 1984. There are approximately 15-30 youth residents served each month and about 200 each year.
