9 AM - 12 PM

Dresden Park
2301 Dresden Drive, Atlanta GA 30341


National Arab American Service Day is all about Serving Communities, Connecting People so let’s be good neighbors! Dresden Park, part of Chamblee Parks, needs our help. They will have staff on hand with tools but they will need volunteers. Dresden is a new park and needs some love and attention.

Who can spare a few hours on a Saturday morning to improve a park that benefits the community? This is a great opportunity to build community spirit and improve our relationship with the surrounding neighborhoods.
