What’s GOOD This June

What’s GOOD This June

Celebrate the start of summer by doing even more good in ATL!

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 June, 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? Contact Emily@CommunityBucket.com and we’ll gladly give it a shout out right here!
