- April 12, 2016-Clayton County Wellness Fair- G & G will have a booth that showcases services and our “Community Matters” events and activities. Volunteers were enlisted by the Family Resource Center to help vendors carry boxes, set up tables, direct them where to go, and assist with carrying and returning items at the end of the event. G & G is providing wheeled carts to assist individuals and vendors with transporting items safely since the walk from the parking lot to the entry door is quite a distance.
- Spring 2016-Buddy Benches—building and donating a Buddy Bench to Kid’s Kampus in Guttenberg, IA. The Buddy Bench is a way to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. If a child doesn’t have anyone to play with, they can sit on the bench, which will alert other children that this person would like someone to play with.
