Donations Needed for the IRC in Atlanta's MLK Day of Service Project in Clarkston
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Atlanta is always looking for ways to be more involved in our community and to have a positive impact in the lives of our refugee clients. As one way to give back, the IRC has officially adopted a section of North Indian Creek Drive in Clarkston – from Church Street to Clarkston High School, as well as the MARTA bus stop in front of the Clarkston Public Library. Not only is this one of the most visible thoroughfares in Clarkston, it is also an area where many IRC refugee clients reside.

Our stewardship of North Indian Creek Drive will begin on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Monday, January 21, 2013. IRC Atlanta staff, interns, volunteers, and refugee clients along with members of the community will clean the one-mile stretch of road and beautify the bus stop, making the area comfortable and appealing for Clarkston residents.
The IRC in Atlanta is currently seeking donations for the Day of Service project, including a bench (or materials to build a bench), a fruit tree, flowers, or potting soil. Please contact Duncan de la Feld, Donations Coordinator, at Duncan.delaFeld@rescue.org or 678-636-8933 to donate or for more information.
All friends of the IRC and Clarkston residents are invited to participate in the event, if you are interested please contact Jessica Seales, Volunteer Coordinator, at VolunteerATL@rescue.org or 678-636-8928.
