 Council Member Marci Collier Overstreet Sponsors Brunch with Santa Honoring Local Elementary Students, Asks for Donations and Volunteers

ATLANTA—Council member Marci Collier Overstreet is hosting her inaugural Brunch with Santa Saturday, Dec. 22 and is asking for District 11 residents to donate a new, unwrapped toy or volunteer at the event.

Brunch with Santa will honor students from five elementary schools, including Fickett, Continental Colony, Deerwood, Kimberly and Cascade. Students will enjoy food, games, making arts and crafts projects in Santa’s Workshop and more.

“I’m thrilled to be hosting Brunch with Santa for some of our all-stars in District 11,” said Overstreet. “I believe that celebrating our little ones goes a long way in supporting families, and it makes my heart feel good to spread some holiday cheer across our district. I look forward to this season every year and giving back to the residents of my community.”

To learn about donations or volunteering, contact the office of Council member Marci Collier Overstreet at (404) 330-6054 or mcoverstreet@atlantaga.gov.
