On Sunday, April 18th, Pebble Tossers presents our 6th Ripple Run 5K/1K & Nonprofit Expo. Last year's inaugural Virtual Ripple Run + Nonprofit Expo was well received and will once again be a virtual event.
The Nonprofit Expo is a motivational, and FUN Virtual Service Event where children and families learn how to become active participants in our community. Through engaging at-home hands-on activities, volunteers are given exposure to new organizations so they can make a difference in our community. The Nonprofit Expo will be a Facebook Live event featuring 6 local nonprofits providing an overview of their organizations and at-home service projects ideas or educational activity related to their missions.
Each nonprofit will demonstrate a hands-on project that volunteers can do from home and then bring to the nonprofit organization or provide an educational activity. Below are the nonprofits participating and their activity:
InCommunity: Volunteers will learn how to start an eggshell seedling cup, which can then be transplanted into the gardens at one of InCommunity's residential homes or day program sites.
Covenant House- GA: Volunteers will participate in an educational activity, through which they can put themselves in the shoes of a young person facing homelessness before they arrive at Covenant House.
Two Thumbs Up: Q&A about Autism and introduction of the Penpal project.
Helping Mamas: Volunteers will learn how to make baby hygiene kits and others.
Open Hand Atlanta: Educational segment on the volunteer needs and how to participate.
Lifeline Animal Project: Volunteers can make Snuffle Mats for homeless pets.
