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
  • Facility repair and fresh paint for Heart to Nourish Hope’s DORM program, a transitional housing service for adult males
  • Neighborhood clean-up with the Camelot Condo Association
  • Awesome art exhibit with Dashboard Co-op
  • Community fair with E.L. Connally Elementary
  • Greenspace improvement at Lindsay St. Park with Greening Youth Foundation
  • Fundraising race for Midtown Assistance Center
  • Repair work for Risla Institutes’s farm building
  • Plantings with Trees Atlanta
  • Landscaping for Historic Oakland Cemetery
  • Painting across Gould Street with SEED
  • Neighbor helping neighbor home improvements with Cabbagetown Initiative Community Development Corp
  • Atlanta Bicycle Coaltion raising funds for the Atlanta BeltLine via the Tour de BeltLine
  • Community Bucket all-stars improving the Atlanta Community ToolBank warehouse

AND THE BEST PART?
Total tool use cost to the charitable sector for all this fun – Only $795.00.
