BENEFITING: Hands On Atlanta, Inc.
As many of you know, I joined Hands On Atlanta’s Civic Leadership Program in July of this year. This program is an opportunity for me to further my personal and professional development while serving the Atlanta community. Through this program, I serve as an ambassador for Hands On Atlanta. I connect people to passions and expand the capacity of Hands On Atlanta’s nonprofit partners by serving as a liaison between volunteers seeking service and nonprofits in need of volunteer managers.
I lead volunteer service projects with City Camp, which is a local organization that focuses on providing an opportunity for economically disadvantaged children of ages 8-12 to participate in a fun chaperoned overnight stay in which they can enjoy a range of activities starting Friday as they prepare to rest overnight before going on a field trip the following day. While providing a safe haven for school weekends, City Camp provides children an opportunity to enjoy activities they would otherwise not have access to.
One of my goals as a Civic Leader is to help Hands On Atlanta support the next class of Civic Leaders so they too can participate in this program at no cost. I am committed to raising $1,200 before July 2016, and every gift, no matter what size is a huge help.
