We are proud and excited to announce that our Billboard Bag project is coming to Clarkston Georgia. With 6000 refugees representing at least 50 countries, there is the need for jobs in the community. We are excited to get to know the neighborhood, and learn from the work being done there.
May 1st, we’re opening our bag project in Clarkston. We are planning to employ 10 refugees who will make products, learn to sew, study English, be connected with a mentor, and be empowered to provide for their families. We are going to need a lot of help to make it happen, and we wanted to tell you about it, and ask for your help!
Here are some areas where you could volunteer your time to help with the project.
