Can you help make the market possible?

The market is 100% dependent on volunteers! Many opportunities are available, with a critical need for collection points (covered porches), postering support, and day-of logistics and staffing.  Check out the volunteer needs and sign up to help here.  We are collecting donations starting April 28 through the morning of May 18.  Donations should be igood used condition; please do not donate stained, damaged, or incomplete items. Please also:

  • Bag and label all clothing together by size

  • Bag and label all pump parts by type

  • Rubber-band shoes together by the pair

  • Securely box/bag all game and toy pieces together

  • Bag stroller, crib, or other gear parts and accessories, and tape to main item

These simple tasks will save hundreds of hours and lots and lots of waste! 

 Items can be dropped off directly at the church on Thursday, May 16th or Friday, May 17th (9:30am - 4:00 pm) or the morning of Sat. May 18th (before 12pm).

To drop off donations at Emory, drive up

to the outside of the church; the market

volunteers will help unload your car and

bring donations into the first floor/lower

level entrance directly  off Georgia avenue.

On the day of the Market, some items may 

be set up in the grassy area outside across

the street (to left of church).
