Tables Built by SIG!

SIG & The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta

Sustainable Investment Group (SIG) volunteered at the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta this past Friday, September 26th. The day began with introductions to some of the volunteers and coordinators at the non-profit, an enthusiastic hello from the workshop dog “Kramer,” and a tour around the facility. It was clear from the beginning that the employees were eager to get to work, building tables for victims of domestic abuse, AIDS patients, and people transitioning out of homelessness.
The team managed to construct and paint 4 tables in roughly 3 hours; quite an accomplishment! The volunteers found this experience to be extremely rewarding, as they felt an immediate sense of gratification as the raw materials quickly developed into pieces of furniture. SIG likes to volunteer every quarter in local communities around Atlanta with great organizations such as the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta.
