The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) has emerged as a world-class membership organization and an engine of economic development for the state of Georgia. TAG’s mission is to educate, promote, influence and unite Georgia’s technology community to foster an innovative and connected marketplace that stimulates and enhances Georgia’s tech-based economy.
On July 14, 2017 the 6th Annual TAG Day of Service provided TAG members the opportunity to give back to the community, cultivate teamwork both within the organization and technology community of Georgia. Members had the opportunity to volunteer at the Atlanta Food Bank (732 Joseph E. Lowery Blvd., NW Atlanta, GA 30318). Volunteers were needed to inspect, sort and pack quality grocery items including non-perishable goods such as canned and packaged products, perishable goods such as frozen/refrigerated items and health and beauty products for distribution to over 600 non-profit organizations in the Metro-Atlanta and North Georgia area.
The Atlanta Community Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Every year, they work with more than 600 nonprofit partners - including food pantries, community kitchens, childcare centers, night shelters and senior centers - to distribute over 60 million meals to more than 755,000 people in 29 counties across metro-Atlanta and north Georgia. In turn, the partner agencies provide food and other critical resources for low-income Georgians who suffer from hunger and food insecurity.
TAG invited its members to volunteer and register for one of two shifts. Either the morning shift from 8:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M. or the afternoon shift from 12:00 P.M.-4:00P.M. See more as you visit the TAG event page.
