Hands On Atlanta Day, the city's biggest, single day of service, is happening Saturday, Oct. 6! Our Director of Development, Julianna Cagle joined me for a fun conversation about how and why our corporate partners like Delta get involved, some of our marquee projects, our Kick-Off party, a very random and uneducated side bar about Silento, and a bunch more. Hope you enjoy it and for more info visit www.handsonatlanta.org.
