Working together to improve the communities where we work and live
On Saturday, June 11th the Clinton Foundation will host a Day of Action in partnership with Mayor Reed and the City of Atlanta, and would love for you to join in what promises to be a fun day of giving back. The Day of Action program was launched in 2012 in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and what began as a single effort to clean up devastated communities in and around New York City has rapidly become an integral component of our work.
The Atlanta Day of Action will be another amazing opportunity to roll up our sleeves and do our part to leave the world a little better than we found it. Volunteers will have the opportunity to sort donated food items, package fresh meals, and set up greenhouses and gardens to provide healthy food options to those in need in greater Atlanta. I hope you’ll become part of the amazing community of volunteers who’ve already made a difference in their communities. Find out more and sign up here.
The Clinton Foundation will join the City of Atlanta for a Day of Action to promote food access and security throughout the City of Atlanta. We will serve the community at several sites throughout the City including: Atlanta Community Food Bank, Covenant House Georgia, Open Hand Atlanta, Maynard Jackson High School, and Thomasville Recreation Center.
Transportation to the project sites will be provided from Historic Fourth Ward Park (680 Dallas Street Northeast, Atlanta, Georgia 30308). Check-in opens at 7:45 a.m. and the kick-off program will follow at 8:30 a.m. The buses will leave promptly at 9:15 a.m.
We plan on departing project sites at approximately 1:30 p.m. Lunch and water will be provided. We highly suggest that you eat a hearty breakfast and bring snacks and extra water.
All participants must be 18 years of age or older.
