Celebrating National Make a Difference Day with Volunteer Evelyn Babey

Saturday, October 24, 2020 is National Make a Difference Day. To celebrate making a difference in our community, we talked with Evelyn Babey, a local Atlanta neighbor and avid volunteer for the Piedmont Park Conservancy.

Evelyn has volunteered with the Conservancy almost every week since the peak of summer. She shares what the Park means to her and why she chooses to volunteer with the Conservancy in a short video below.

We at the Piedmont Park Conservancy rely on people like Evelyn to keep Piedmont Park’s 200+ acres clean, safe and beautiful. On average, over 10,000 hours are needed from volunteers every year.

Caring for Piedmont Park takes a village. Every person counts.

You won’t believe the amount of trash an individual can find in just a few hours!

On National Make a Difference Day, we thank all of our volunteers for your ongoing support and dedication to this historic Park.

Without you, we could not care for this park alone.

Looking for a way to give back? We invite you to make a difference in your community by volunteering with the Piedmont Park Conservancy. Our volunteer program has implemented new safety protocols including social distancing, digital waivers and more. From group landscaping projects to socially distant self-led trash pickups, everyone can get their hands dirty for the Park.
