Supporting Our Cause

Thank you for your interest in helping The Extension.  We are fortunate to have a community of volunteers, donors, and supporters who give their time, talent and treasures to help us provide vitally needed services to our residents and to the community.

Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are the reason we are able to provide services to our 83 residents every day of the year. Volunteer opportunities are available in landscaping projects, clerical support, building enhancement, meal preparation, fund raising, special programs for program participants and others.

Needs List: We have an ongoing need for items such as copier paper, bathroom tissue, coffee, shaving razors, laundry detergent, sugar and creamer. For the latest needs call Tyler Driver, Executive Director, at 770-590-9075 x301 or tylerdriver@theextension.org.


Clothing: We will accept new or gently used clothing for our residents. All sizes are acceptable for men and women. Clothing may be dropped off at our Church Street location.


Goods: On occasion, we have a need for items such as vacuum cleaners, washers & dryers, copiers, office furniture, etc.


Financial: You may not be aware that we do not charge our residents a fee upon entrance to our program. For that reason, there is an ongoing need for financial support from the community. Without financial support, we are not able to provide our services. We welcome donations from individuals, businesses, churches, civic groups, or fundraisers that your group can host on behalf of The Extension. Click here to donate.

To plan a fundraiser on behalf of The Extension, please contact Renee McCormick, Director of Community Relations, at 770-590-9075 x309 or reneemccormick@theextension.org.


Matching Gift: Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some may even triple the amount of your gift! Many companies also match volunteer hours or gifts from spouses, retirees, and board members. For more information, contact Renee McCormick, Director of Community Relations, at 770-590-9075 x309 or reneemccormick@theextension.org.


Planned Giving: Planned giving is a great way to leave a legacy. Please consider The Extension when making decisions about how you want to leave your legacy.
