Annie's Attic is a Christian-based family-owned business that has the desire to help those in need throughout our community or to just make someone smile because they know others care about them. And through that desire to spread joy to others, the Annie's Angels program was born in 2003.
Other causes we support are The Arrow Fund, two different Christian Appalachian Groups, the Kentucky Humane Society, and a variety of other charitable efforts throughout the year.

Through Annie's Attic and generous customers like you, the Annie's Angels program has provided thousands of Christmas holiday gift bags for residents of nursing, health, or retirement homes in the Louisville Metro area every year since 2003. Beginning October 1 of each year, we hang paper "ornaments" on the Annie's Angel Christmas tree with requests from residents in homes throughout the city. Customers take one or more ornaments and bring the items back in a holiday bag, many of which can be purchased at a dollar store (no wrapped gifts please). Our family and other helpers assist with delivering the bags to each and every home and many will host a party for the residents so they can open their gifts at the same time.
Some of the items requested are: Chap Stick, wall calendars, tissues, shower gel, socks, slippers or house shoes, lotion, combs, brushes, lap blankets, sweatshirts or sweaters, religious items, stuffed animals, floral arrangements, Seek & Find books, snacks, University of Louisville or University of Kentucky items, old jewelry, knick-knacks, perfume, magazines, items for a bedside table, and more.
As of 2016, Annie's Attic, with the help of donations from those in the community, has been able to help over 30,000 nursing home residents! These residents look forward to receiving a gift bag full of various thoughtful gifts at Christmas and are so appreciative when they pull out each and every item. Some residents have no family members and the bag may be their only gift they receive during the holiday season. The gratitude from these Annie's Angels brings joy to our family as much as it does to them as recipients.
If you would like to donate items, make a monetary contribution, or obtain one of our Annie's Angels ornaments during the holiday season, please stop by Annie's Attic, call or email us today. Thank you for your generosity and God Bless You!
