Atlanta Chapter

Assistance League of Atlanta Members Celebrate the Chapter's 40th Anniversary - October 2022

Assistance League of Atlanta has over 250 member volunteers who help children and adults in need rebuild their lives and become more self-sufficient. For the past five years, our member volunteers donated an average of 50,000 volunteer hours each year to the chapter’s philanthropic programs and Attic Treasures Thrift Shop.

We are a 100 percent volunteer organization. This means we have no employees and no salaried executive director. Our member volunteers do it all. Come join us and become part of our community service efforts to help children and adults in need.
