Dozens of volunteers braved the cold weather to serve at The Children’s Village at Christian City for “A Day On, Not a Day Off” on MLK Day. A group of employees from Georgia Power joined together with the 8th Grade Transit Group from Woodstock City Church to plant shrubs in the recreation area at The Children’s Village. Julie Thames, co-owner of Flintwood Farms in Fayetteville, volunteered her time to design the landscape plan and manage preparation of the planting area. Another group stocked the food storage facility with a shipment from Midwest Food Bank.

Three separate galleries on this page below show how the volunteers made a BIG difference at The Children’s Village on MLK day, January 18. A Huge “Thank You” to everyone who participated!

1) Midwest Food Bank donated and delivered a truckload of food to stock our food room for the kids!
2) Georgia Power Company employees donated time and LOTS of energy on their day off to plant trees and shrubs
3) 8th Grade Transit Group from Woodstock City Church spread pine straw after the plants went in
