My home address is 4624 Buckley Court, the corner house at Buckley & Riverglenn Circle in the Dunwoody North neighborhood directly across from Peachtree Middle School. My driveway faces Riverglenn and if you see a basketball hoop you are at the correct location. It would be appreciated if you place the supplies either near the garage door or on the table under the tree (if it is raining) and I will take care of the rest. Thanks and remember it could have been, or once was us that needed the help.
Dunwoody Families can help Families in Joplin, Missouri!
Although it’s not clear right now whether I will be doing this on behalf of Chesnut, all Dunwoody, or just as a private citizen, I am writing to ask for your help. I will drive out to Joplin in a U-haul on Tuesday or Wednesday, 5/31 or 6/1. I will be taking with me ANYTHING that could be useful to the families there.
New or lightly used items from the following list would be MOST appreciated: water, clothing, furniture, blankets, books (children and adult), board games, playing cards, toys – whatever your family would need to survive in a shelter for a period of time, or to help rebuild later. In addition, there is ALWAYS urgent need for diapers and formula in any catastrophe like this.
You can also donate financially directly to the Red Cross via their website’s Missouri update page: http://newsroom.redcross.org
We will be waiting for the state of Missouri to post information about the search and rescue, as well as the sorts of donated items they would welcome. In the meantime, we can get started with a collection of our own to be ready for Monday. (Anything that I cannot deliver once I arrive will go to the nearest Salvation Army or other donation center.)
PLEASE GATHER YOUR ITEMS FOR THE FOLLOWING DROP-OFF LOCATIONS:

Thank you for ANYTHING that you can do to help!
