About Pecans on PeachtreeTM
In 1982, a member of the Shepherd Center Auxiliary had a great idea: why not sell unique, delicious Georgia-grown pecans to raise funds in support of the unique, ambitious Atlanta-based Shepherd Center?
From our first year of selling pecans out of the back of Auxiliary members’ cars, Pecans on Peachtree has developed into a year-round activity, shipping tens of thousands of pounds of delicious pecans around the world each year. And 100% of the net proceeds from those sales directly benefit the patients and families of Shepherd Center.
