It’s another volunteer victory in the big city ya’ll! A whooping 625 Atlanta volunteers hit the streets this simmering June 11th-14th weekend, donating 2,500 hours of service to pretty much every cause you can imagine. And the one thing they all have in common? Blue tools. Lots of blue tools. $26,450 worth of blue tools, to be exact. And just what did all those ToolBank tools do? Check it out:
- Weeding and Mulching in the Old 4th Ward along the Atlanta BeltLine

- Neighborhood clean-up with the Camelot Condo Association
