On May 2nd MJ teammates volunteered to help pack food boxes at the Atlanta Community Food Bank. In approximately 4 hours our team packed 600 boxes, totaling 18,600 lbs which will provide 15,500 meals! Fox 5 News in Atlanta was onsite and provided news coverage here: http://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/bank-of-america-day-of-service#/
They could use your help too! You can obtain additional information as well as sign-up to volunteer here.
Below are a few facts taken from their website:
