In the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, one of the worst storms to hit the Florida panhandle in years, some Atlanta residents have made an effort to help those affected throughout Florida and Georgia get access to necessities.

“Thousands are desperately struggling through their new normal: power issues, shelters are at capacity, necessities remain scarce,” Dan Mallory, a Decatur resident taking part in the effort, said.

Mallory, along with Susan O’Dwyer of Alpharetta and the accounting firm Aprio, will head down to Florida with two semi-trucks full of needed relief items next Wednesday, Oct. 31. Currently, the group is seeking donations, especially from Atlanta companies.

“We have a way to go to fill the trucks,” Mallory said.

Companies or other people can make donations by dropping off goods at one of these locations:

  • Home Depot, 5300 Windward Parkway, Alpharetta, and Lowe’s, 5925 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs (donations will be accepted here from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Oct. 30.)
  • Susan O’Dwyer’s home, located at 12725 Bethany Road in Alpharetta, 404-384-9940
  • Dan Mallory’s home, located at 211 E. Parkwood Road, Decatur, 404-729-1685

Alternatively, tax-deductible monetary donations can be made to the Aprio Foundation, where 100 percent of funds raised will be used to purchase necessities. Donations can be made by going to this link.
