Turnips, Terriers and Tourniquets

It’s a better way to meet new people in Atlanta… Guaranteed.

Join us for a day of gardening with refugees, playing with shelter pups and packing medical supplies for the developing world! On Saturday, August 20th, spend a few hours helping three of our Community Partners – Global Growers, PAWS Atlanta and Medshare. Afterwards, pay off your good deeds with some lunch and social time with your fellow volunteers.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Reserve your spot for the projects below (you must register to attend, since space is limited)
  2. Commit to showing up at the scheduled time to serve these local nonprofits
  3. If you’re feeling social, grab some food and drinks with your group immediately after we volunteer
  4. Tell your friends to join you, or come alone and meet new people. Either way, you’ll have a blast.
  5. We’ll send you information in a separate email a few days before the event, so stay tuned for that

Impact areas: Animals, Gardening, Global Impact, Healthcare, Refugees

Please only register if you know you can attend, as spots are limited and we do not like to disappoint our Community Partners with no-shows. If your plans change after you sign up, we ask that you let us know in advance so we can fill your spot. Thanks!
