More than 30 Georgia Transmission employees, friends and family members helped clean up Burnt Fork Creek at Mason Mill Park, Toco Hills, and surrounding areas today as part of a Rivers Alive project during Hands On Atlanta (HOA) Day.
Georgia Transmission’s employees were joined by others from Georgia Electric Membership Corp., Oglethorpe Power Corp., Georgia System Operations Corp., and other area firms – forming a group of more than 150 people who cleaned up the creek, creek banks and surrounding areas.
Hands On Atlanta Day has become the largest centralized day of service in the nation and serves as a catalyst for corporate community service within Hands On Georgia (HOGA) Week, an initiative launched by Gov. Sonny Perdue in 2004. This year, HOGA Week projects will take place in all of the state’s 159 counties. Last year, more than 68,000 Georgians participated in service projects across the state during HOGA Week.
Rivers Alive is an annual campaign to clean up state waterways.
