Volunteer Opportunity: Help Clean Out the Rock Gym Today
A weekly list of local volunteer and donation opportunities.
The following are local volunteer opportunities and donation needs:
Help Needed -Volunteers:
- Rock Gym help: Volunteers are needed to help clean up the Rock Gym at the corner of Mimosa and Ridge Avenue today (Wednesday, Sept. 19) in the City of Stone Mountain, between 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Items from various events have been stored there over time and there's just too much clutter and stuff - as well as trash, some city council members said at their work session this week.
- Smiling faces: The Stone Mountain Visitors Center could use folks with "happy, friendly, smiling faces" who are proud of the Stone Mountain city community and a passion for sharing, said the center's Kim Cumbie. If you fit the happy bill, contact her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Hands On Atlanta Day is Saturday, October 6. Local DeKalb County schools including Allgood and Woodridge elementary schools in Stone Mountain as well as Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve in Lithonia are listed as participants on Hands On Atlanta's site.
