Come to the PORCH Sept. 11
Our next Porch Collection is Sunday, September 11 from 3-4:30 p.m.
Donations of non-perishable food, toiletries, and monetary donations are accepted in Tisdale Hall.
A * (star) represents a particular need for DEAM for September. A + (plus) represents items needed for “PORCH on the Street.” Some items mayhave both indicators.
In addition to our continued support for DEAM and Church of the Common
Ground, we will grow or create the following distribution points:
- Food for Schools – work with 2 local schools to understand their needs and how PORCH can support them. We hope to solicit volunteers from high school to distribute the goods.
- PORCH on the Street – a new initiative to distribute individual bags for people in need that we encounter in our day-to-day activities. More on this in another email!
- FreeFridge – continue supplying the pantry portion of the FreeFridge outside North Decatur Presbyterian Church
We encourage taking advantage of the BOGOs (Buy On, Get One free)
offered at many stores – one for you and one for PORCH. PORCH is also
looking for more volunteers to be neighborhood coordinator. Ideally, we
would like multiple neighborhood coordinators for the many neighborhoods
such as Avondale Estates, Medlock, North Decatur Heights, etc.
