DEAM needs volunteers to help in the office, food pantry and clothing closets. * As of December 2020 DEAM has an adequate number of volunteers.
Volunteers are carefully trained on job procedures and are always paired with at least one other volunteer while on duty.
Volunteers usually work only one morning a month.
Volunteers come from several surrounding counties. You may fill out a volunteer application form below. Please note: as of March 2020 DEAM only has a need for new office volunteers.
Donations of non-perishable food items that are especially needed on a continuing basis:
**Economy-sized boxes of these are most welcome.
Items can be donated between 8 and 10:30 am on Wednesdays, since our staff will be re-stocking and unloading deliveries during that time frame. (Donations are accepted during open hours M, T, Th and Fr, but W is very much the preferred day).
Covid-19 Update: We are accepting donations between 8 and 10:30 on Wednesday mornings only. Please leave the items outside the DEAM door, we will get them inside shortly.
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.
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.
