This week was our largest donation to date. We donated more than 83 pounds of fresh produce to Malachi’s Food Pantry. A big thanks goes out to Sally M. and Rod P. for scale-tipping donations from their home gardens. We donated cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, buckets of fresh blueberries and more.

Also, we donated 22 bookbags and a several bagfuls of school supplies–glue sticks, calculators, binders, markers and much more. A big thanks goes out to Stephanie R, Sally M., and John Heneghan for generous donations.

Malachi’s food pantry, where we donate produce weekly, needs school supplies for the children they serve.

Essentials currently needed:

  • pencils
  • markers
  • red pencils
  • pocket folders
  • 1 inch 3 ring binders
  • backpacks

No donation is too small. $1 will buy a pack of pencils. $5 will buy a folder for each class. $15 will buy a backpack. $50 will provide a child with a fully-stocked backpack.

HOW TO DONATE:

  • Credit card: Click the donate tab and then click the donate button. Enter your credit card info securely, and be sure to type “school supplies” in the notes box.
  • Check: Write a check to Dunwoody Community Garden and mail it to Angela Minyard, PO Box 88535, Dunwoody, GA 30356. Be sure to write “school supplies” on the memo line.
  • In-Kind: Drop off school supplies to Malachi’s food pantry at St. Patrick’s Church on North Peachtree Rd. on any Wednesday between 1:00 – 6:00 pm.

Monetary donations will be used by a garden volunteer to purchase needed supplies and then the volunteer will deliver them to Malachi’s. If you’d like to help, let us know: membership@dunwoodygarden.org.

Our garden’s goal is to donate a ton of fresh produce to Malachi’s food pantry this year. If you have extra produce from your home garden or community garden plot, please let us know!
