Community Events

Assistance League of Atlanta participates in community events for visibility and fundraising, increasing our ability to help those at risk.

March into Chick-fil-A

In the spring, we partner with the Jett Ferry Road Chick-fil-A® in Dunwoody for this shoe extravaganza event. Customers, large and small, donate gently used shoes, and Chick-fil-A gives them a free Original Chicken Sandwich – a win-win for all. Donated shoes are sold in the shop and proceeds fund shoe purchases for Operation School Bell® students, some of whom never had a new pair of shoes.

You’ll be surprised at the quality and pizzazz of our fashions!

City of Peachtree Corners Festival

Our Philathropic Center is located in Peachtree Corners, so we look forward to participating in the city’s annual celebration in June of each year.  The festival features arts and crafts, live music, fun for the kids and a special car show. At our Assistance League booth, we sell chalk-painted furniture items, painted by our members volunteers, and other novelty items.

Dunwoody July 4 Parade

The Dunwoody July 4 parade is the largest in the state of Georgia. This event has become one of our long-standing traditions, having participated since 2004 – rain or shine! Our entourage usually consists of a truck, decorated with items from our thrift shop or information about our programs and a convertible with our President on board. Our ground troops carry signs and give out candy to the parade watchers. It’s fun and patriotic and we love doing it!

Annual Glitz and Glam Sale

All year long, we set aside glamorous clothes, furs, shoes, handbags and jewelry for our special Glitz and Glam Sale each fall.  Shoppers are invited to get their glam on and buy their holiday finery at Attic Treasures. There is something for everyone in the family, even the children. This year was the first time to hold the sale at our Philanthropic Center at 6264 Crooked Creek Road in Peachtree Corners to allow plenty of room to display all our beautiful items.

Assistance League ACTION! Week – February 23-29, 2020

ACTION! Week is a National Assistance League annual event with over 100 chapters across the U.S. helping less fortunate children experience the transformation that having someone care about them can make. While the chapters choose to celebrate ACTION! Week in their own unique way, we are all working together in a common purpose of helping children in need.This year, Assistance League of Atlanta, addressed hunger among school children in our community through our new pilot program, Backpack Buddies, which provides food for children who might otherwise lack meals over the weekend by sending them home with a backpack of food on Fridays
