Holidays for Heros.
Your neighbors and Dresden East Civic Association are raising money for our 4th annual Holiday for Heroes. We will provide Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for firefighters located at the Clairmont, Dresden, PDK and Mercer stations along with the Chamblee and Doraville police officers, (approximately 80 people). We will also provide special treats for the police K9’s.

“This is the least we can do for those who dedicate their lives each day and night for the betterment of our communities. They protect us from harm unseen and unheard. Our servicemen and women are the true definition of Heroes. " — Christopher Lee, DECA President

Our target amount is $1,200 to cover costs. This will be in addition to any donations provided by local food markets. The deadline is November 19 to allow adequate preparation for delivery. Please click on the link below to donate. Please also share with your neighbors.

DECA will use any leftover funds for next year's Holiday for Heroes, or for other charitable uses determined by the DECA board.
