Over the years, Brownieland Pictures has been continually inspired by
working with organizations that give back to the community. So, in
celebration of our 10-Year Anniversary, we decided to give back to those
nonprofits in our community who are spreading hope and facilitating
change every single day!
The Brownieland Team decided to roll up

Well, today is the day to announce the winner of the Brownieland Pictures #10in10 Volunteer Campaign! (drum roll please…)
Congratulations to Literacy Action! Literacy Action
is the Southeast’s oldest and largest nonprofit provider of adult
literacy services. Literacy Action annually teaches over 1,000 adults
how to read, write, understand mathematics, and learn other essential
literacies necessary for a productive life. The Brownieland Team
volunteered with Literacy Action’s Mock Interview Workshop where
attendees learn how to dress for success, prepare for interviews, and
practice their skills in mock interviews.
Every one of the
nonprofits the Brownieland Team volunteered with was uplifting and the
work they do helps define Atlanta as a community that cares deeply.
With that said, here is an overview of the past year and our incredible
experiences giving our time to Atlanta nonprofits through our #10in10
Volunteer Campaign so that you can find out about all of the amazing
