The cause of the homeless is near and dear to the heart of Resurgens Orthopaedics’ Dr. Gary Stewart. This marks the seventh year that Dr. Stewart has organized a coat and blanket drive, with Haven House of Henry County, a shelter for abused women and their children, being the beneficiary.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution gave Dr. Stewart a major boost by shining a positive light on his good works and his cause on Nov. 29 in its “Sunday Conversation” feature in the Metro Section. Lenz successfully pitched the idea to Ann Hardie, who handles the feature for the AJC that often has a non-profit or charitable theme to it.

“If you have done some charity work and it is easy,” Stewart told the AJC, “then maybe you aren’t giving enough.”
