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

 

City of Peachtree Corners Festival

Our Philathropic Center is located in Peachtree Corners, so we look forward to participating in this year’s city’s annual celebration on September 18th and 19th. The festival features arts and crafts, live music, a car show, great food and free parking. At our Assistance League booth, we sell items from Attic Treasures and enjoy sharing with those who stop by our booth the good works we do through our philanthropic programs. This will be the first year the festival will be held in the new Peachtree Corners Town Green.

Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams, Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive & Long Putt Contest at the Turn.

Assistance League’s ‘Thrift Witch’ visits Atlanta Botanical Gardens every October

For four consecutive years Assistance League of Atlanta has participated in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens’, ‘Scarecrows in the Garden’ event. The event takes place throughout the entire month of October so visitors to the Gardens can enjoy the various scarecrow-type exhibits. Each year we submit a different version of the ‘Thrift Witch.’ This year, she appeared as “Ann BOOleyn.”  Every year, the creative team of members make her costume entirely from donations from our thrift store, Attic Treasures, which is why we call her the ‘Thrift Witch.’

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.  In early November, 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.

Assistance League ACTION! Week – 2021

ACTION! Week is a National Assistance League annual event held the last week in February with chapters across the U.S. choosing their own unique project to help less fortunate children in their respective communities. This year, our Atlanta Chapter’s Action! Week theme was about helping children less fortunate to blossom and grow and experience the transformation that someone caring about them can make. COVID forced us to think creatively about what we could do without being face-to-face with the children. Providing books to promote literacy is always dear to our hearts, so we expanded the idea of giving a book to a child by also giving them a Beanie Baby “buddy” and a healthy snack to make it really special. These items were packed up in ziploc bags with our label “Have Fun Reading With a Friend,” and 100 bags were delivered to Oakcliff Elementary School during Action! Week. Since the school had not resumed on-premises teaching due to COVID precautions, the school counselor distributed the book packages to the children for us.

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.

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! This year our entourage included a decorated truck/float honoring essential workers during the recent COVID-19 pandemic, members walking along beside the truck and a convertible with our Chapter President, Ellen Frank, on board waving to the parade onlookers. It’s fun and patriotic and we love doing it!
