Murphy-Harpst is a place for children who have been neglected or abused to feel safe and cared for while undergoing intensive therapy. Around 60 kids live at the Cedartown home and another 40 in foster care, while therapists work with them to create a personalized treatment plan.
The program must raise $1.6 million each year, and half of that money comes from the United Methodist Women of the North Georgia Conference.
As one of Public Partners, Murphy-Harpst can receive .7 percent of the money you spend in the supermarket if you swipe a special card. If your family spends $150 a week on groceries, that would add up to nearly $55 a year for Murphy-Harpst.
To receive a Publix Partners card to help the children’s home, drop by the church office or call (706) 543-2612.
