Safe at Home Game presented by L.E.A.D., Inc. and APIVEO

Saturday August 24 From 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM (West Atlanta)

For the 5th consecutive year, Atlanta’s kids and cops will compete on the baseball diamond and lead Atlanta communities in goodwill and fellowship. Its purpose is to create an environment of competition, trust and respect between two communities who often struggle to find common ground and to open lines of communication so often searching for a connection. We are looking for volunteers to volunteer in a unique and unconventional way. We need you to come out and “S.I.T. and Serve” at the Safe at Home Game. S.I.T. stands for Simple, Intentional and Transformative.
