Host a Food Drive in Your Subdivision
Host a food drive in your subdivision or on your street to help benefit a Co-op in your area.  Decide on a Saturday morning and a place to collect from your neighbors. Flyers, signs, and bags will be provided by Community Outreach. Three weeks before the food drive, order flyers, signs, and bags from Community Outreach. Two weeks before the food drive, hand out flyers to your neighbors. One week before, place reminder signs in key locations. On Saturday of your food drive, hang out and greet your neighbors (usually from 9:00 AM - Noon). This is a great way to engage and get to know your neighbors.  
Serve With North Fulton Community Charities
Join a group of Perimeter volunteers who will serve one Saturday a month together from 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM. Volunteers will work in the food pantry or thrift store, building community while serving together. This is a great opportunity to serve with other members, neighbors or a small group on a regular basis for just three and half hours per month.
The Place of Forsyth - Food Pick Up Drivers

Volunteers are needed to pick up food from Publix and Kroger and then deliver to The Place.  We need a few volunteers to add to the "Regulars and Sub List" so we can maintain our relationships with Publix and Kroger markets.

If you have 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours free in the morning  perhaps you could help us out! Please contact Deborah Ross with your contact information and the day(s) you would be interested in assisting.  Currently, we need folks primarily on Thursday to pick up several stores.  It can be anytime between 8:00 and 10:00.  If you want to be on the sub list for any day of the week, you can let Deborah know that as well.

We pick up from Laurel Springs Publix, the Publix just off exit 14, Kroger Sharon Rd, Kroger at Castleberry/Bethelview, and Green's Corner Kroger at Bethelview/20. Maybe you live near and shop at one of these--it could be an excellent opportunity for you to serve if you have just a short window of time.  All of these are within 15-25 minutes of The Place.

Please contact Deborah at deborah@theplaceofforsyth.org with details and how to get started!  Thanks so much.
