ESF only has three full-time staff members, so we rely heavily on our amazing volunteers.

Group volunteer shifts are made available to our sponsors as a way to thank them for their financial support. If you are a sponsor or are interested in becoming a sponsor and would like to schedule a group shift, please contact us.

From April through September, volunteers help with all aspects of school supply kit assembly, from opening and sorting products to packing supplies into backpack kits, and filling online store orders from teachers and our Nonprofit Procurement Partners.

From October through December, volunteers pick and pack holiday gift orders.

From January through March, volunteers help clean up, organize and inventory the warehouse so we can do it all again!

All volunteer shifts take place at our warehouse (693 Humphries St., SW Atlanta, GA 30310) unless otherwise noted.

Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with important information and details about your volunteer event (be sure to check your spam folder). Please remember that each individual must register separately.


ESF remains committed to protecting the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, and the children we serve. With regard to Covid 19 safety protocols, we generally follow CDC guidelines and make adjustments to our operations as needed.
