DEAM buys many canned fruits and vegetables from the Atlanta Community Food Bank at pennies on the dollar, so financial donations are always greatly appreciated to help fund these purchases and maximize the benefit of your donation dollars. Economy-sized boxes of these are most welcome, as are donations of resealable bags.
Financial Donations are always much needed and greatly appreciated. In addition to helping stock the food pantry, DEAM relies completely on your contributions to fund financial aid for prescriptions, prevention of loss of water, gas and electricity services.
DEAM is a designated non-profit charity 501(c)(3) as defined by the IRS. Our office will furnish an acknowledgement letter for any monetary donations so that the donor may use it to document their donation for tax purposes.
