Athens Area Homeless Shelter
Hello Grocery Donors!
First of all, thank you SO much for your donations this Summer!! You all have gone above and beyond to help make sure our families had the food they needed while they navigated the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Because of your incredible generosity, we actually have all we need for a while for families in all 3 of our programs! We are overwhelmed with gratitude from your support.
With that being said, we are adjusting our last couple of weeks of grocery donations since we do not currently need food donations. We are aware several of you signed up for the upcoming volunteer slots on Wednesday July 22 and Wednesday July 29 and want to honor your commitment. Thank you for your willingness to support and we hope you understand our need to pivot. We will be removing those slots from the grocery donation signup genius to help reduce confusion, but would love for you to still be involved!
If you would still like to donate on those days you'd originally planned to give, we are asking that instead of food you purchase a Kroger gift card for future food needs for our shelter or purchase cleaning supplies (bleach, multipurpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner) to help fill that need. Those items can still be dropped off at 205 Bray Street Unit #412 Athens GA, 30601 between 1-2pm on your original volunteer date. If you'd rather not donate at this time and wait for future needs, we completely understand and again appreciate your willingness to respond for families experiencing homelessness.
If you have any questions about these changes, feel free to reach out! I'm happy to help.
