For more than a decade, Lazarus has held an annual Health Day in the heart of Atlanta. This year, we will gather together on Sunday, September 22 from 2-6pm at North Avenue Presbyterian Church on Peachtree Street and celebrate good health and kinship with our brothers and sisters in the homeless community. We need your help to make this meaningful event happen. You don’t have to be a doctor or nurse to volunteer.
Sign ups are closed, but you can still help!
Health Day 2019 is this Sunday, September 22, from 2-6pm in the parking deck of North Avenue Presbyterian Church. Unless you have heard otherwise from your volunteer section leader, please be onsite no later than 1:30pm.
Sign ups are now closed. If you have friends and family who would like to join us, who didn’t sign up, they can still come and take part in the event. All are welcome, and we can always use extra hands setting up at the beginning and packing up at the end of the day. Everyone signs in at the registration table, and everyone can enjoy the event!
Bring some donations.
We still need gently used jeans and shoes, and new packages of underwear and socks. You can drop them off in the clothing section when you arrive.
Prepare for the weather.
All of our events go on whether rain or shine. Right now, the forecast is calling for a warm, beautiful day. So make sure to dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes!
Remember that this event is not just about services and hand-outs, it’s about building kinship and making friends. The lines between guest and volunteer are blurred on purpose. So, have fun and meet some people!
The event will take place in the parking deck at 607 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30308. We encourage you to carpool or take Marta. There are several paid lots and some on-street parking in the area. The North Ave Marta Station is less than a block from the church.
