More than 350 kids, families, and individuals came together on January 16 for MLK Day of Service at the Clarkston Community Center. The day's service projects benefited the Clarkston community, particularly the area's refugee population, many of whom are LSG clients. Activities included packaging rice, packing pots and pans, assembling hygiene kits for newly arrived families, and a Clarkston community clean-up. All said, volunteers picked up 84 bags of trash equaling 1,680 pounds, made 240 hygiene kits, painted walls, dug post holes, demolished a sign, sanded wood, and bagged over a ton of rice!
Thank you to all those who participated and helped ease the transition for refugees in Georgia!
