More than 6,000 volunteers are expected to fan out across the city on Oct. 3 to tackle more than 100 service projects as part of Hands On Atlanta Day 2015. Volunteers of all ages are still needed for the event, which will carry on rain or shine from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Some of the projects for this 25th anniversary Hands On Atlanta Day include planting gardens, small repairs, painting murals and creating outdoor classrooms at local parks, schools and nonprofit organizations.
Mercedes Benz will host this year’s Celebration of Service at ZOO Atlanta with food, live entertainment, and a special day at the Zoo, which will be closed to the public and only open for Hands on Atlanta Day volunteers.
