Community Events

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

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. You’ll find something for everyone in the family, even the children. This year will be 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.

Furs, both faux and real, are a big hit!
Sequins and lace abound at this sale!

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!

Children’s Book Drive

Assistance League of Atlanta’s Children’s Book Drive is on-going throughout the year. We  collect and distribute thousands  of books for children in need in the Greater Atlanta area, many of whom never had a book of their very own. Reading stimulates children and forms their view of the world. Through our book drive, we hope to make an impact by making children’s books available to children in lower income homes. The focus of the campaign is children ages 1- 12 but books  up to age 16 are accepted.
Sad Facts
  • 61% of lower income families have no children’s books in the home.
  • This lack of books puts children at a disadvantage, because 75% of students who are poor readers in third grade remain poor readers in high school.
  • The average number of books for this population is one book per 300 children,
Assistance League member volunteers participate by donating money, purchasing books at thrift stores and the American University Women’s Book Sale, sorting donated books and packing them for distribution. As part of National Assistance League’s Legacy of Literacy initiative held on Saturday, February 24,2018, chapter members distributed books to children at the Fiesta de Libros event at the Plaza Fiesta on Buford Highway in Brookhaven and read to the children as well. For more information on how you can help with this worthwhile project, contact us.
The Black Rose Foundation for Children, Inc. partners with Assistance League to benefit children in need.

Peachtree Corners Holiday Parade

Now that our Philathropic Center is located in Peachtree Corners, we joined other area businesses and organizations and marched in  the City of Peachtree Corners “Glow in the Corners” parade this past November. Members decorated a pick-up truck with many holiday items from our thrift store. This was our first Peachtree Corners parade, and it looks like we’ll be making it an annual event.

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 Payless shoe vouchers for Operation School Bell® students,some of whom never had a new pair of shoes.
