DATE CHANGE TO SATURDAY THIS MONTH - MADSA members and friends will hold our monthly social gathering on Saturday, Dec. 16 at this member-owned great hangout (now serving food as well as a long list of local brews). Marxism not required, just comradeship. Cold weather may drive us indoors but we will welcome you warmly. Look for our poster. We're are also joining with the Justice for All Coalition through January to raise funds and collect supplies for Atlanta's unsheltered population. We need blankets, sleeping bags tents, coats, women's and men's pants, sweaters, gloves, knit caps, hygiene kit supplies (travel size), chemical hand warmers, socks, q-tips, wet wipes, and cash for gas to pick up and deliver supplies and to buy food to feed the unsheltered people on the weekends when most other agencies are closed. Because catering company donations drop off during the winter, most of Atlanta's unsheltered homeless may eat only three meals from Saturday morning until Monday afternoon.
