VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A fundraiser Thursday in Valdosta will benefit a home for children with disabilities that will open in a couple of months.
Megan's house is a place where parents can take their kids who have developmental disabilities, autism, or health problems to give themselves a break.
The children can stay there from 24 hours to two weeks.
The home is on Williams Street and opens in March.
"You can't just have a family member watch over them soemtimes or they don't feel comfotable with the feedings, changing the diapers so this is where someone who has a child who's disabled can just take them drop them off at this house and we'll have trained nurses to watch them," said December Smith with Megan's House.
Proceeds from a wine market at Steel's Jewelry at 3338-1 Country Club Road.
It's Thursday at seven. You could win a diamond necklace. Tickets are $50.
If you can make it out, here's a list of needed items:
-pillows, blankets, throws
-dryer, vacuum, swiffer
-towels, wash cloths
-sheets (twin and queen)
-kitchen supplies, dishes
-phones and baby monitors
You can drop those items off at Easter Seals Southern GA, 610 N. Patterson Street, Valdosta. The number there is (229) 247-6912.
