On a bright Saturday morning, two weeks away from the start of summer, the City of Atlanta played host to the Clinton Foundation’s Day of Action. Launched in 2012, to clean up devastated communities in New York City, the Clinton Foundation Day of Action program has expanded. Mobilizing over 6,000 volunteers, it has donated more than 25,500 volunteer hours.
THE CLINTON FOUNDATION RALLIES VOLUNTEERS TO COVENANT HOUSE GEORGIA
We found this to be the perfect opportunity to support an initiative aligned with one of our principles, giving back to the community.
With Mayor Kasim Reed at the helm, Adrienne J Media, and volunteers throughout the City of Atlanta, rallied together for a purpose. During the day we all served different sites and organizations such as, Covenant House Georgia, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Thomasville Recreation Center, Trees Atlanta and Truly Living Well Center.
AJM, with fellow Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI) participants, volunteered at the Covenant House, a youth shelter that provides opportunities for residents achieve housing stability and serves as an educational and vocational resource. We rolled up our sleeves to participate in activities like planting trees in gardening communal lots and labeling plants, to be sold via the Covenant House’s HUG program. HUG helps sustains Covenant House by raising from plants sold, to community gardens and gardeners, at local Atlanta Farmer’s Markets.
