Project Open Hand serves homebound seniors and others who cannot get out due to disabilities and chronic medical condition. The organization has sounded an urgent call for help in getting food to all of the folks who depend on Open Hand volunteers.
Volunteers are needed now, throughout the weekend, regardless of road conditions. People with four-wheel drive vehicles would be especially welcome. All delivery routes originate from Open Hand’s facility at 176 Ottley Drive and encompass all areas of metro Atlanta.
Delivery hours are from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Because of advance warning, Open Hand was able to deliver extra provisions ahead of the storm, but those are running out. Many of those served by Open Hand are blind or wheelchair bound .
To assist call Open Hand’s volunteer line at 404-872-2707 or 404-488-0081 after 9 a.m.
