DEAM relies on contributions of non-perishable food and basic health supplies. DEAM buys many canned goods from Atlanta Food Bank at pennies on the dollar, but the items pictured below are always in short supply.
Right now (March 2017) we especially need: Soup of any kind – especially chunky beef, pasta sides such as hamburger helper, canned fruit (any type except applesauce), small boxes of corn muffin mix, sweet cereal, cans of black eyed peas and cans of lima beans and we also need bar soap, deodorant, toilet paper, toothpaste and shampoo.
How DEAM Donations Fight Hunger and Homelessness
DEAM donations fund food and financial contributions directly to Decatur-area residents to prevent homelessness and hunger.
$1 – will buy 6 cans soup and vegetables, enough to feed 1 hungry senior citizen for 1.5 days
$5 – will buy peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, milk and vegetables, enough to feed 1 mother and child for 3 days
$15 – will provide complete meals and basic toiletries for family of 4 for 3-4 days
$25 – will pay for 3 months prescriptions for critical conditions such as diabetes, heart conditions and asthma
$75 – will pay a past-due gas or electric bill, so a family does not have heat cut off this winter
