Brownieland Pictures Volunteers with Atlanta Nonprofits in 2020

Brownieland Pictures Volunteers with Atlanta Nonprofits in 2020For the past three years, the Brownieland Team has volunteered with Atlanta nonprofit organizations and shared their Stories for the Greater Good! It all started back in 2017 with our #10in10 Volunteer Campaign, and we have Brcontinued to volunteer with a different Atlanta nonprofit each month witnessing the incredible work they do throughout metro Atlanta. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year, nonprofits have been at the frontlines of this crisis, working day after day to provide financial, emotional, and social support that nurture our communities. Organizations have utilized their resources to answer the call of those in need, while friends and neighbors have come up with creative ideas to make a difference in our communities. Brownieland featured volunteer opportunities around Atlanta and showcased nonprofit programs in hopes that it would motivate others to come together and lend a helping hand. 

Even though things may have been a little different this year with the ongoing pandemic, we did not let it get in the way of our monthly volunteer projects. As this year comes to a close, we look forward to more opportunities connecting with Atlanta nonprofit organizations in the year ahead. Until then, please take a look back on this year and learn about the remarkable Atlanta organizations we volunteered with in 2020!
