Atlanta Revisit Project, Atlanta, Ga.

After building a playground for elementary students in Atlanta last year, we came back to Atlanta to share the “Do Good. Live Well.” volunteer spirit with the Lou Walker Senior Center.  Our volunteers built three raised produce gardens designed with seniors in mind. Other projects included constructing two planter benches and beautifying current landscaping.  We invited seniors to spend the day at the center to take part in free health screens, fitness and line dancing demonstrations, Medicare information seminars, and a gospel concert to top off the day of fun.
