the 25th annual hands on atlanta day was last saturday and mercedes-benz was the presenting sponsor along with other corporate partners and local organizations who came out to support. employees and their families worked all morning in the community, afterward volunteers were invited to a private celebration of service at zoo atlanta.
stephen and I landscaped and gardened at a local elementary school. outside of a brief encounter with a pile of fire ants and some thorny branches, all went smoothly for us. other volunteers worked at the dunwoody nature center, sandy springs community assistance center, local parks and neighborhoods. read more to learn about the awesome impact of hands on atlanta day and mark your calendars to join us next year!
