Professor Jan Pratt and a group of students, including Marissa Smith 12L and Sean Sobottka 10L (above), helped the Atlanta Community Food Bank sort food and check packaging to ensure donated items were safe for local food pantries and shelters.

Marc Gross 12L (first row, from left), Jeff Slanker 12L, Brandon Goldberg 10L, Adam Reinke 12L (second row from left), Cody Warner 12L and Jon Fayer 12L spent the morning helping break up old concrete and clean up a work area for the Chattahoochee Nature Center near Roswell, Ga. After they finished with the concrete, students helped mulch.

Students helped the East Side Parks Network mark gravesites at Clay Cemetery in Gilliam Park in East Atlanta. Students mulched, removed invasive plants and worked on a bike path. The cemetery is one of Atlanta’s first integrated cemeteries.
