The Rotaract Club of Atlanta is a social, professional development, and community service organization for young professionals between the ages of 21 and 30 in the metro Atlanta area. The Rotaract club holds bi-weekly meetings for members and guests to which it invites a variety of speakers, and members frequently get together for community service projects and social events.

You Are Cordially Invited To:

The Cabbagetown Chomp and Stomp is a time-honored Atlanta tradition, in which we Atlantans proudly get together and...eat. Which is never a bad thing! So join us on November 1st for a day of live music, chili, and artwork (and beer of course). The festival starts at 11 am, but you can start your day off at 8 with the Romp and Stomp run (not me, I'll be resting my chili-eating muscles!). The festival goes until 6, so you can join us later, but don't miss the chili tasting ($5) at 12:30, and be sure to stick around for more cabbage-related contests than you ever dreamed could be possible!

The festival has a trolley from the King Memorial Marta Station, or you can carpool and park at the Grady Health Systems parking lot behind the station.

More details are at: http://www.chompandstomp.com/home. Come out and come hungry!

The Atlanta warehouse processes, sorts and ships all of the high-quality books that BFA sends to children and adults in Africa. Demand for BFA shipments has grown so much that the warehouse has had to double its holding capacity in the three years since it opened.

From 2010-2011 alone, BFA shipped over 1.9 million books to 21 countries and BFA expects to send at least 2.2 million books over the next year. For those books to reach African children, the Atlanta warehouse ships anywhere from 20,000 to 60,000 books in an average week.

Smooth warehouse operations are invaluable in BFA’s mission to end the book famine in Africa. With a small staff, the Atlanta warehouse depends heavily upon volunteers to sort and pack books. Volunteers made it possible for BFA to send over a million high-quality and useful books to the children of Africa each year!

We rely on volunteers like you to sort and pack the books for our shipments.  No heavy lifting is involved.  

If you are looking for a fun, satisfying volunteer experience, join us at our warehouse!
