On Sept. 10, corporate teams will pack hygiene and food items at various Y branches, including those in Marietta, Atlanta and Stone Mountain.
Then on Sept. 11, community members, families and volunteers are invited to assist with the assembly and distribution of donated items at Kennesaw and Atlanta Y locations.
Additional volunteer opportunities are available throughout this week for those unable to attend the events on Sept. 10 and 11.
Days of Service began in 2018 as a celebration of the Y’s 160 years of service in the Atlanta community.
In 2020, the tradition continued as more than 600 Y volunteers and staff gathered to pack food boxes for thousands of families in the community needing food due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the beginning of the pandemic, the Y quickly expanded its hunger relief efforts to meet the critical needs of the community.
Since March of 2020, the Y has provided nearly 900,000 meals to families and individuals throughout metro Atlanta, including more than 265,700 free meals for children under the age of 18 and nearly 140,000 bags of food.
