Assistance for Those in Need - During the Pandemic

UPDATED 7/27/2020

Hello! This is a SignUpGenius initiated by Decatur community members (started March 2020) to provide assistance during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic to those experiencing homelessness and/or food insecurity (focusing mainly on the City of Decatur area).

Holy Trinity Episcopal ParishFirst Decatur Baptist ChurchThreshold Ministry of Decatur Presbyterian, and A Home For Everyone in DeKalb are contributing supplies, funds, and/or prepared sacks for this private outreach while their buildings are closed.

In the month of July we asked the community to provide individually wrapped sandwiches and a bottle of water to be added to the bags prepared each week by volunteers through the church/agency listed above. That worked well!!

Please sign up for one or two slots per day on the calendar. One slot=25 individually wrapped sandwiches and 25 (approx) water bottles. Two slots=50 individually wrapped sandwiches and 50 (approx) water bottles.

You can assemble the individually-wrapped sandwiches at home and then drop them off at Shelly Fine's parking deck (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs) or Jen Walcott's carport (Fri, Sat, Sun). Deliver the individually-wrapped sandwiches and water bottles in a bag or box and we will add them to sacks we already have prepared. Then we will distribute them in Downtown Decatur to those in need (taking all safety/social-distancing precautions). Please be sure you are using every recommended safety measure as you prepare these meals as we do not want to spread the Coronavirus from our homes to these neighbors unwittingly.

If you would like any bag or box back that you have used for delivering items, please let us know so we can leave it where you can collect it.

This campaign began for the purpose of filling in the gap in homeless services created by the COVID-19 pandemic and as we see more people become food insecure. We will continue this endeavor only as long as the churches/organizations remain closed.

If you prefer to donate money to help fund this endeavor A Home For Everyone In DeKalb is accepting donations through CompassionateATL.org/donate. $10 will feed six people. Be sure to earmark the donation for HOMELESSNESS. 

For any questions or scheduling problems: Jen's cell phone 404-643-8974; Shelly's cell phone 904-825-8035.
