Last month a few of the Imagineers participated in the Community Bucket Tech Gives Back event. Community Bucket is an organization that’s committed to giving young professionals a platform to connect and make friends in Atlanta, by combining volunteer projects with social events. The Tech Gives Back event linked professionals from tech industries and gave us an opportunity to network with different agencies around Atlanta.
We all braved the unexpected scorching September heat and rolled our sleeves up to support the Grant Park Conservancy by helping them restore and maintain the children’s playground. After some brief instructions from the leaders, we were raking mulch, correcting siding, and trimming bushes to get the park looking beautiful as we welcome the Fall weather.
Despite the fact that we were all sweaty and exhausted by the end, it was such a fun way to give back to our community and meet the other attendees. The best part was as we were leaving we passed a family as they were arriving at the park who commented on how beautiful it looked. Our hearts were full and we’re looking forward to the next opportunity to volunteer with Community Bucket!
