Since 2017, the DeKalb Emergency Services Association (DESA) has prepared and delivered over 5,000 meals during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. These meals are funded by fundraisers and donations.
Please consider donating your time and/or resources to help us provide for the wonderful people in our community that need our help.
Volunteer to help or bring desserts please
Thanksgiving morning we will start around 9 am by pulling turkeys and starting the setup. Our kitchen team will be cooking the mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, and warming the dressing. Our dessert team will be cutting and packing desserts laying them out by route. Delivery drivers will gather designated meals and desserts to start their delivery. The cleanup team will start to break down and clean the complex putting it back. We are usually finished by 11 am.
