About Us

On June 5, 1982, the Dogwood City Chapter of the Links, Incorporated was officially installed and began its philanthropic and volunteer commitments with twenty-four charter members. Dedicated to the purpose of promoting and engaging in educational, civic, and intercultural activities, Dogwood City Chapter became the second chapter in the metropolitan Atlanta area.

Today Dogwood City Chapter has 70 members. Members are especially proud of their involvement in the activities that benefit primarily the City of Atlanta, but also reach beyond the continental USA. We are unified and strong in the knowledge that our membership in friendship and service can make a difference. The Dogwood City Chapterís members are bonded by a chain of friendship and committed to improving the quality of life for others, particularly those of African descent.
