Pecans on Peachtree Holiday Fundraiser for Shepherd Center Offers Great Gifts

Shepherd Center Auxiliary kicks off popular fundraiser, which runs through Dec. 21.

Shepherd Center Auxiliary kicked off its annual fundraising event, Pecans on Peachtree®, today. For more than 30 years, Pecans on Peachtree has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund patient-related programs at Shepherd Center through the annual holiday sales of hand-packed, freshly grown, delicious Georgia pecans.

Pecans on Peachtree® offers an assortment of pecans and treats designed especially for holiday gift giving, priced from $13 and up. The delicious nuts and chocolate-covered pecans are great for corporate gifts, teacher gifts, a neighborhood gift exchange and even last-minute gift needs.

Pecans on Peachtree items are on sale today through Dec. 21, 2014 and can be picked up in person at Shepherd Center or shipped via UPS.

To order:

  • Visit PecansOnPeachtree.org
  • Call 404-367-1322 or toll-free 1-877-5PECANS (877-573-2267).
