Take a break from the cupids, roses and boxes of chocolate and join 70 other volunteers to show your love for Atlanta with a morning of social volunteering. But don’t think this is just some kind of couples event… Everyone is welcome to attend and take part in the large group service project with Park Pride. As part of the celebration, we invite you to bring along anyone else you know and like who loves Atlanta as much as you do… (friend, co-worker, boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse… anyone.) You’ll even finish up in time for whatever plans you have that evening. Here’s what you can expect:
SERVICE: Our entire group will be at a single site with Park Pride, a local nonprofit dedicated to preserving over 100 parks around Atlanta. From dirtying your hands with trail maintenance, to taking a whack at invasive species removal, there will be plenty of hands-on work to complete, and you’ll be impressed by the amount of impact we can have in just a few hours. The project is from 10am-1pm in Oakhurst (near Decatur).
SOCIAL: A Community Bucket event is never complete without good food, good drinks, and great people. We’ll head to Universal Joint in Oakhurst as soon as the service project ends for a chance to socialize with the rest of the volunteers and relish at your hard work that morning. As an added bonus, all volunteers will receive one FREE drink ticket. You just need to show up and love your city. Cost: Free (but you must register.)
