The Packaged Good recently merged with Solidarity Sandy Springs. Founded by Sally Mundell in 2014 in honor of her husband Grover, The Packaged Good gives children volunteer opportunities that teach them about giving back. When the pandemic hit, The Packaged Good was unable to provide in-person volunteer activities and started offering online education for children.
Solidarity Sandy Springs started in March 2020 with Jennifer Barnes, realizing that residents of Sandy Springs were experiencing food insecurity as a result of the COVID 19 economic shutdown. Discovering similar missions, the two organizations merged, and The Packaged Good moved into the Solidarity of Sandy Springs location at the Prado. The merger offers more opportunities for children to volunteer through Solidarity of Sandy Springs and enables The Packaged Good volunteers to also help ensure that no one in Sandy Springs goes hungry.
