The following are several organizations' needs for volunteers or donations. The groups listed are in Stone Mountain or in areas nearby:
- Host families needed. Aspect Foundation is looking for families to host international exchange students, which will start arriving this month. If interested, call 1-800-US YOUTH(800-879-6884).
- Smiling faces: The Stone Mountain Visitors Center could use folks with "happy, friendly, smiling faces" who are proud of the Stone Mountain city community and a passion for sharing, said the center's Kim Cumbie. If you fit the happy bill, contact her at: email@example.com
- , (RFS) 5561 Memorial Drive Suite H in Stone Mountain, welcomes people who want to plan an alternative break helping out the organization. Just fill out the Alternative Break Information Form and email the form to the RFS Volunteer Coordinator.
- RFS needs classroom assistants in its after school program August 16-September 7 (Monday-Thursday) from 2:45 until 5:45 p.m.
Volunteer coordinator Stephanie Burton said the after school volunteers don’t have to be available everyday; even just one day of help would work.
Let her know what day(s) you are available: firstname.lastname@example.org
- says a $50 donation can provide up to ten new books to help students in its afterschool program; $150 can send two refugee students to summer camp for a week, and of course the help spreads even further the more you give. Find out how you can donate to Refugee Family Services here.
