We have a weekend filled with doing good, meeting people and having fun on Saturday, July 16th. And there’s something for everyone, with meal deliveries, urban farming, tree planting and board games with seniors. Choose from 5 different service projects with Concrete Jungle, Decatur Senior Home, Urban Sprout Farms, Atlanta Memorial Park and Open Hand Atlanta. Afterward, we will be at Torched Hop Brewing on Ponce to reward our good deeds with some cold local brews.
Here’s how it works:
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!
