You helped us beat our goal to raise almost $14,000 to build desks for kids in support of their education while attending school virtually. WOW! We can’t say enough how much we appreciate so many of you stepping up during this campaign. You rock!
We’re also sneak peaking another opportunity to win a cool and functional work of art while contributing to additional desks for kids. Stay tuned for more info on our auction of desks that have been spruced up by local Atlanta area artists, like this one…
Posted Thanksgiving Day 2020:

With the help of one of our Board Members, Char Miller-King, we were recently highlighted on 11Alive News:
Inspired by a woodworker in California who made desks for kids, Decatur Makers thought we could do the same here in Atlanta. After sending out an initial form to gather requests from families, we’ve had over 700 families in-need from across Atlanta request over 1,700 desks, and the list keeps growing! The emails we’re getting from families are so appreciative as there seems to be a huge need to offer a distinct learning space for youth as virtual learning continues, and, we’ve had to limit our offer to 500 desks for now.
Our initial goal is to raise $12,500 to cover materials for these 500 desks. We’ve raised almost $4K so far and have built 162 desks.

Would a free desk for your child(ren) make it easier for them to get through the school days while they’re working virtually?
Inspired by the woodworker in California who started this idea, Decatur Makers is ready to build them, at no cost to you.
If you’d like one (or several) for your kid(s), please click this link, fill out the form, and we’ll be in touch to let you know when we’re building them: Desk Order Form
