Hot Projects: Week of Oct. 29


Meadow Habitat Restoration

Saturday November 3 From 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM (Buckhead)

Blue Heron Nature Preserve is seeking a small group of volunteers to assist with restoring the meadow habitat spaces along our outdoor trails. As the weather is becoming increasingly cooler, we will be removing many of the plants and flora which seasonally bloomed during the summer, but have now died back. This project will entail working outdoors to pull, cut, and remove large plants, as well as general trail maintenance and clean up.

TeamWorks! Kickoff

Saturday November 3 From 9:45 AM - 12:00 PM (Westside)

Hands On Atlanta TeamWorks! is a program that betters metro-Atlanta through meaningful service projects. Kick-off is the first meeting of every round. It is an orientation - a chance for volunteers to meet, form teams, and learn about the projects planned for that round. It is not a service project. For five to six Saturdays after the kick-off, teams compete to have the highest turnout at service projects that impact a variety of causes and communities throughout Greater Atlanta.

Open Hand helps homebound seniors and others suffering from disability or chronic disease by providing Comprehensive Nutrition Care™(CNC), a combination of nutritious, home-delivered meals, and nutrition education. Volunteer drivers are a critical part of the service Open Hand provides to the community, since a majority of the organization’s clients are homebound. In fact, a volunteer driver is quite often the only person a client may see on any given day. Volunteers will pick-up meals, deliver meals to clients using their own vehicles and gas, and return the delivery list and delivery bags back to the Open Hand site.
