Service the HHNR way
On a monthly basis HHNR has a Day of Service which averages about 100 to 150 unsheltered patrons. We provide hygiene kits to these individuals each month as well as donated gently used clothing items.
This day of service is in collaboration with other nonprofit organizations who provide food, prayers, other essentials and clothing for men and women. This service is currently held the first Saturday of every month in the Parking Lot at 360 Edgewood Ave in Atlanta. We are consistently looking at other locations within the Greater Atlanta area that need our help.

Annual Charity Masquerade Ball
Every October, HHNR hosts it's annual charity masquerade ball. This event was created in 2016 by HHNR founder, Donny Edwards, as a fun, celebratory way to thank our sponsors, donors, and volunteers for their service and contributions to HHNR throughout the year. The ball also serves as a wonderful opportunity to showcase HHNR's achievements that year and to raise additional funds for future endeavors.
Additionally, the ball provides our founder and leadership team a platform to highlight HHNR's progress and discuss future plans for the charity, allowing everyone involved in the charity to see their contributions come to life. And besides, who doesn't love an opportunity to get dressed up, have an amazing dinner, and dance the night away all whilst supporting a great cause?
Hunger Has No Religion
Each year, during the annual charity masquerade ball, Hunger Has No Religion honors several individuals whom have gone above and beyond for the organization. We take great pride in having the opportunity to honor these individuals and showcase their service and support.
