Atlanta Compassion in Action Weekend

A couple of weeks ago Unite! Atlanta, working together with Hands on Atlanta and Great Day of Service combined their hearts and hands to serve Atlanta. It was a classic example of people of good faith working together with people of good will in the community. Unite! director, Chip Sweney sent the following stats my way.
