How They Served Their Community


Food Bank of Central Alabama Red Mountain Park Hatching Hope Shepherd Center East WIAT-TV partnered with Hands On Birmingham to assist four local organizations: Shepherd Center East (Senior Home), Red Mountain Park, Community Food Bank of Central Alabama, and Hatching Hope. One team went to the senior home to garden and clean/organize closets. At Red Mountain Park, CBS 42 employees cleaned up park trails by removing 80 yards of privets and other scrubs. Staff members also volunteered at the local food bank where they processed 5,850 pounds of food donations. At Hatching Hope, a team assembled toiletry/disaster supply kits.
