Main Street Milledgeville Director Carlee Schulte is ready to embrace the holiday season with the spirit of giving thanks.

“This month we hope to inform the community of the many charities that are doing great work in our area and encourage community members to explore all that downtown has to offer,” she said.

Among the variety of charities, the Students helping Students led by Georgia Colleges’ SGA philanthropy along with live entertainment performed by the popular Fall Line Ramblers.

Right outside the Lemon Tree on Wayne Street, the Chard Wray Food Pantry will be collecting canned goods for their latest food drive.
