Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta. To hold a Kitchen Kit & Linen Drive, all you need to do is spread the word around your office, school, or place of worship. We'll send you a flyer to share.
If you'd just like to hold the drive, we can schedule a time for one of our trucks to pick up the donations. Groups can also come to the Furniture Bank to make kits out of the donations they collect.
Below are some more details and options on group volunteer opportunities:
Time: We can do anytime between 9am and 4pm, with some dates blocked off for other groups and events. If you suggest some dates, I'm happy to see if they are available! Otherwise, I can give you some options. Typically it works best to have groups come for a 3 hour period. Weekend volunteer events require a longer lead-time for planning.
Activity: Groups can hold a kitchen kit and bedding drive at their office prior to their volunteer day. This involves asking coworkers to bring in gently used kitchen items (plate, pans, cups, etc.) and gently used linens (sheets, pillows, comforters, etc.) to donate. The group then brings these items to the Furniture Bank and their volunteer activity can be sorting these items and putting them in boxes for families. Please keep the group to 20 people or under.
