  Been wanting to try a Habitat build? Come put in some sweat equity with a deserving family. We will be on Week 5 of this year's build so painting will be our major task. We will depart from the YAAB at 7:15am and put in a full day's work, returning by 5pm (usually between 3 and 4pm). Must be at least 16 to volunteer. (15 volunteers)
PEACHTREE CREEK PARKS AND TRAILS  
Scouts of all ages will lead this project, but Glenn members are welcome! Wear insect repellant and old but sturdy (closed-toed) shoes to this outdoor effort. We will be clearing ivy, collecting trash, preparing to plant trees, and creating/mulching a path. Kids welcome! Meet at the YAAB at 8:15am or onsite (directions will be provided) at 9am. 
MEDSHARE (Morning)
Sort and pack donated Medical Supplies that get shipped all over the world. A great chat-while-you-work activity! Families welcome: ages 8 and up. Meet at the YAAB at 8:15am. Shift at Medshare is from 9am to noon. (Limit 30 volunteers)

Sort, pack, and give out donated food at the Intown Collaborative Ministries Food Pantry. Glenn is an active part of this ministry cooperative of congregations in zip codes 30306 and 30307. Ages 10 and up welcome. Meet at Druid Hills UMC (corner of Briarcliff and Ponce) at 10am and plan to finish by 1:30pm. (12 volunteers)
For those who really enjoy just rolling along, Glenn members of all ages will work with Action Ministries to host a group of Atlanta children/teens for a few trips around the rink and lunch. We’ll need both supervisors and skaters from 10am to 2pm. Meet at the YAAB. Kids are welcome!
 
SINGING at MONTCLAIR
No musical experience is required for this sing-along visit with the residents. Babies and small children as well as their parents would be a hit at this project. Participants will meet at Montclair (in the Community Room at Clairmont Place, across from the VA Hospital) at 10:45am and finish around noon.
