Community Service

In partnership with our dear friends at Peach Blossom Sangha, and inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, Red Clay Sangha has an active Community Service program. Early projects include coordinating and managing a donation of tools to Habitat for Humanity, making over 200 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the Sandwich Project, and assembling backpack care kits for the housing insecure, mostly distributed through HOPE Atlanta. 

(If it helps encourage you to engage in the world and work with your sangha, click the image to see a video that one of our members took when a couple of us went on a World Pilgrimage to Vietnam and were fortunate enough to visit the shrine to Thich Nhat Hanh at his home temple in Tu Hieu.)

The activities of this program are generally family-oriented projects, and we invite you to bring along family members and friends - old and young - to participate. It's a great way to help others, to connect with our dharma friends, and to include our family and friends in our practice.

Regular announcements on upcoming projects are made at both Red Clay Sangha and Peach Blossom Sangha, and you can simply keep an ear open for those. If you're interested in being more proactive, maybe even getting more involved in the planning and project selection process, feel free to join the monthly Zoom call (second Monday of each month, 7:00, Red Clay Sangha's usual Zoom link (Breathe and Enter).
