Project calls for the Forsyth community to revive old school

What: Day of Service at Grady HS

Where: 929 Charles Allen Drive NE, Atlanta, Ga. 30309

When: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 27
April 16, 2013
ATLANTA — Local coffee shops are working toward a common cause in a significant project — beautifying a school in Atlanta.

At Cumming Starbucks locations, boxes are set up to collect school supplies, paint supplies and cleaning supplies for Grady High School, 929 Charles Allen Drive NE, Atlanta.

Starbucks, Kids and Pros and Grady High School partnered for this day of service, April 27, at one of the oldest and most historical schools in Atlanta.

Kimmy Yee, a Starbucks store manager at 435 Peachtree Parkway in Cumming, said a minimum four-hour commitment from volunteers is needed from Forsyth County who want to take part in the efforts to give a new life to Grady HS.

"In total, we want 700 volunteers, but in the Forsyth County area, we'd like to have 30 to 40 volunteers," Yee said.

In addition to volunteerism and donation of resources, there will be career and recruiting roundtables and a football clinic taught by NFL players, as well as a basketball clinic and creative clinic taught by coaches, players, art teachers and students.

The project offers an opportunity to highlight the success of when community comes together with parents, students, teachers, administrators, the business community and resources.

To take part in this project, visit or visit local Starbucks stores and talk to the store manager.

Contractors interested in donating any paint supplies can email Dawn Curry at Kids and Pros:
