Come support our prep efforts at Matti Freeland Park for Operation Westside Surge. Mattie Freeland was a longtime resident of English Avenue in Atlanta. In a neighborhood that suffered greatly during and after the crack epidemic of the 80’s with violent crime and blight, Mattie was a fixture of positivity and love. Mattie was considered to be a grandmother to all in her community, and was known for having a couch or a meal for anyone in need. While she lived, Mattie envisioned a peaceful and beautiful gathering place in her neighborhood. After her death in 2008 at age 93, the community rallied to create Mattie Freeland Park.

We need some motivated volunteers to help with wood cutting, demoing, landscaping and much more. We will provide water and lunch for those hard chargers who wish to volunteer all day!
