    On Saturday, November 14th, ATD Atlanta volunteers facilitated a Computer Lab class that taught Habitat for Humanity homeowners how to use Microsoft Word and Excel. The participants had the opportunity to practice formatting a document in Word and creating a budget in Excel. Many of them were unfamiliar with those valuable tools, so they were very excited to acquire new skills they could use at work and at home.

    If you are interested in making a difference by facilitating one of these courses or the Computer Basics course at the Habitat for Humanity Education Building, please contact Carl Ware or Danielle Slatinsky.

    The ATD Atlanta chapter has been partnering with the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) to help support local communities and ensure that Atlanta's children and families don't go to bed hungry. Local ATD chapter members volunteer quarterly at ACFB's Product Recovery Center, sorting and packing food to be shipped out to local families in need. Volunteer nights are a fun way to get to know other ATD Atlanta chapter members, and the energy that everyone brings to the event makes the time fly by! At our most recent volunteer night, we helped sort and box up 6,522 pounds of food - the equivalent of 5,435 meals!

    In addition to volunteer nights, ATD Atlanta supports ACFB by participating in the annual Hunger Walk in March. This 5K is a great opportunity to get some fresh air and exercise while supporting a great local cause, and you'll get a chance to bond with fellow chapter members as we conquer the 5K as a team!

    Here is a great "Day In The Life" feature on the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB)!


    This photo was taken at our last Atlanta ATD volunteer night at the PRC. That night we helped sort and box up 6522 lbs of food! That's 5435 meals!

    When we support ACFB and our other community partners through our volunteer efforts, whether it's through sorting food at the Product Recovery Center, teaching new computer users at Atlanta Habitat, or teaching resume and job search skills at United Way, we do a lot of good for our community!
