December Weekend of Good

Dec 02, 2017 to Dec 03, 2017

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

Winter is around the corner, and so are the holidays. Join Community Bucket on December 2nd & 3rd for our final Weekend of Good in 2017, and dive into the giving spirit this Holiday season. We’ll have plenty of projects to choose from on both days, and you’ll have a blast meeting like-minded people as you make a local impact. Farming, pets, brunch… we have something for all tastes… How can you make a weekend any better?!

Here’s the line up to choose from:

Saturday 12/2

  • PAWS Atlanta – Show some TLC to homeless pets in Decatur (disclaimer: you might leave with an adoption…)
  • MedShare – Sort and pack unused medical supplies that were diverted from landfills and will be sent to countries in need
  • Concrete Jungle – Get out on a neighborhood farm in SW Atlanta for some much needed prep for the Winter season
  • Get social! Join us afterward at Holy Taco (1314 Glenwood Ave SE, 30316) for some amazing tacos and conversation!

Sunday 12/3

  • Cafe 458 – Work in a full-service brunch restaurant where all the proceeds go to helping the homeless become more self sufficient
  • Blue Heron Nature Preserve – Spend a morning cleaning up a beautiful park and nature preserve in Buckhead
  • Get social! Join us after the Blue Heron project at Fellini’s Pizza (4429 Roswell Rd NE, 30342) for some awesome food and conversation! (Cafe 458 social will be held on site).

Ready to commit? Here’s how it works:

  1. Reserve your spot for one of the projects before they fill up (spots are limited, see details below)
  2. Commit to showing up at the scheduled time – project times are listed below
  3. If you’re feeling social, stick around for lunch after we finish working
  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

Impact areas: Animals, Food Access, Healthcare, Homelessness, International Relief, Parks, Urban Farming
