Spread joy this December by spending your holiday season volunteering around Atlanta!

We’re back with our monthly “What’s GOOD?” series, giving you a rundown of other volunteer opportunities besides our regularly scheduled events. If you’re missing a Community Bucket event this December, or if you just need more volunteering in your life, we’ve got you covered. All you need to do is contact the organization or show up (details for each are included below). You can even invite other CB-ers to go with you, but you don’t need to register through us to attend.

Questions?

Have an event you’d like to feature next month? Attend an event and want to share feedback or pictures? Send an email to Emily@CommunityBucket.com!

Holiday Tree Greetings

  • What: Available every year from Thanksgiving to Christmas, The Holiday Tree Greeting is an attractive card that packs a powerful punch: a tree is planted because of it, or rather because of you. For every holiday tree greeting you purchase for $25, we send a card to the friend, family member or associate of your choice. Each card tells your loved one that a one-year old tree is being planted in their honor, through Trees Atlanta’s NeighborWoods program. As always, we’ll hand-address the envelopes to your recipients for a personal touch. The Holiday Tree Greeting is an excellent alternative to wrapped gifts for your friends, family, and business associates. Not only will this unique and meaningful gift help you breathe a little easier – literally – it’s easy, earth-friendly, and tax-deductible.
