Sugar Hill’s AlignLife – Chiropractic and Natural Health Center is collecting gifts for Jesse’s House this holiday season.

Jesse’s House is an emergency shelter in Cumming, Georgia which caters to adolescent girls who are victims of abuse and neglect. The nonprofit was founded in 1998 in response to a needs assessment survey by Kennesaw State University which identified gaps in services for the north Georgia region.

The current shelter is capable of housing up to 12 girls at a time. Most girls who are housed there end up staying for about a year.

In the 23 years that Jesse’s House has been in operation, they have served over 1,000 girls.

Especially desired items are:

  • Makeup items (sponges, brushes, foundation, eye liner, brow gel, etc.)
  • Makeup remover wipes
  • Teen romance novels
  • Journals
  • Coloring books
  • Perfume
  • Body wash
