The City of Decatur and Dekalb County have 2,100 homeless school age children and their families who are in need this winter. We are asking for your help to assist individuals in need this season. Please donate non-expired food items or a winter coat. The City of Decatur Fire Department will be collecting items until December 19. All items will go to Decatur Cooperative Ministries as they help families who face homelessness settle into safe, stable homes.
DCM offers comprehensive services helping to prevent, endure, and overcome homelessness. Drop off items at either of the City of Decatur Fire Stations (230 East Trinity Place or 356 West Hill St.), the Decatur Recreation Center (231 Sycamore St.), or City Hall (509 N. McDonough St.).
For more information you may call Captain Violante at 678-553-6583 or Decatur Cooperative Ministries at 404-377-5365.
