About Pecans on Peachtree
From the trunks of cars to a thriving year-round fundraiser! Pecans on Peachtree started in 1982 as a small volunteer operation when a member of the Shepherd Center Auxiliary had the idea to sell delicious holiday pecans to raise money for the Shepherd. Year after year the program has continued to grow and now we sell tens of thousands of pounds of pecans around the world every year! 100% of the net proceeds of all Pecans on Peachtree sales directly benefit the patients and families at Shepherd Center.
