Corporate Volunteer MLK Partners

When you choose the Piedmont Park Conservancy for your Martin Luther King (MLK) Day volunteer project, you showcase your commitment to supporting the local community and the environment while enjoying a fun day out with your team.

MLK Day is on Monday, January 16, 2023. Other dates may be available that week.

Benefits of our corporate volunteer program include:

  • Corporate visibility
  • Team building
  • Employee engagement
  • Physical activity that takes place in the Park
  • Stewardship of the environment and public greenspaces
  • Education about the importance of native plant communities, the tree canopy and pollinators

Why Volunteering is Critical

The Park has become more than just a place: it’s an outdoor gym, a calming escape from the city and a safe gathering place for friends. You help us keep Piedmont Park a place where we can clear our minds and keep our sanity.

“Volunteering in Piedmont Park has allowed our team to continue our tradition of employee volunteerism during the COVID-19 pandemic, providing a valuable outlet for our employees to give back to our community and socialize outside of our normal work environment.”- Becca Rushin, Jamestown, L.P.

Because of our volunteers, here are a few moments that were able to happen.

  • Keep over 40 acres of lawn space clear of trash so people were able to celebrate and safely gather in a clean space
  • Plant native shrubs and trees that keep Piedmont Park beautiful and shaded, especially during the extreme summer heat
  • Restore the Park from storm damage by clearing fallen trees and scattered limbs
