What’s GOOD This May?

What’s GOOD This May?

We’re giving you even more ways to do good in ATL!

As part of our new monthly “What’s GOOD?” series, we’re going to give you a rundown of other volunteer opportunities besides our regularly scheduled events. If you’re missing the Weekend of Good, or if you just need more volunteering in your life, Community Bucket has 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
