Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) Commissioner Spencer R. Moore and members of his Team recently visited the DeKalb Access and Resources Center (ARC) -- a program with Georgia Division of Family & Children Services - to deliver a supply of bookbags, luggage and backpacks for foster children.

ARC provides foster care services for over one thousand children each month with at least 37% of the youngsters moving from two to three different homes. Most of these children are forced to carry their belongings place to place in a brown trash bag.

DDS is changing trash bags to tote bags! The Agency’s administrative headquarters and statewide customer service centers collected new and gently used luggage, book bags, totes and other bags to contribute.

"Even in these uncertain times, the heart of DDS is about serving others. We are especially proud to support children in the foster care system," commented Commissioner Moore. “I believe that this gesture will make a difference in many children’s lives.”

DDS urges customers to handle their licensing services remotely via dds.georgia.gov or on the free mobile app, DDS 2 GO.  If  you must visit in person, making an appointment will provide safe and efficient service during this emergency period.
