We have volunteered with Pebble Tossers several times. It is a very family friendly organization and a wonderful way to spend family time and teaching your children what it means to be a good citizen of the community. It also allows my girls to go online and find community service opportunities that they see a need for and also ones that they have a strong interest in helping. Thanks Pebble Tossers!!

Our 2014 Walk to Cure Arthritis was a huge success. Please let them know that we couldn't have done it without them. Volunteers are the backbone of all our community events!!

Many thanks from the entire Arthritis Foundation staff.

My son volunteered with Pebble Tossers this weekend to visit with the elderly. This experience for him was wonderful. The staff kept the afternoon moving along by being well prepared and organized and offered suggestions to him on ways to engage the elderly in conversations. We look forward to participating in more Pebble Tossers service projects.

Pebble Tosser is a great organzation. They keep you informed of the lastest events serving the community. They have a great website that is user friendly and always up to date. I thank PebbleTosser for giving me and my family the oppurtunity to work with them to help others organizations in need. We got a lot out of the 7 Bridges to Recovery feed the homeless on Oct. 12, it was a humbling experience.

The folks at Pebble Tossers are amazing. Every event they host that we have participated in has been exceptionally well organized. Each event has been great to bring the whole family along and has allowed us as a family to easily find ways we can help "give Back' to the community.

If your looking for a great way to get involved in your community and make a difference, we suggest you give Jen and her staff a call right away.

This is a wonderful charity that helps promote volunteering not just for kids but for families. Bringing families together to tackle service projects together builds a stronger foundation for kids to grow upon. I love the idea behind this organization, especially because they do all of the hard work finding places to volunteer. They are wonderful to work with, the provide a multitude of opportunities each month and they are doing great work in their community! I would 100% recommend them to friends and family!

Pebble Tossers provided a group of volunteers for our Dunwoody Friends of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Run For Your Heart 5K last fall. It was a great resource for us to tap into to recruit young people to help out at our event. Their website is user friendly and it was simple to register our organization and submit information about our event. Pebble Tossers provides a unique opportunity for our youth to get involved in their communities.

I volunteered at pebble tossers for the past two years and it has always been and extrodianry experience. It is a strong family oriented orginization. It is great for kids my age because we are always in need for service hours. Pebble tossers is a fun way to get the amount of hours you need. There is a perfect variety of things to do at each event so that many ages can participate in at least one activity. It is also fun because you can pick an activity to do with friends which makes it even more enjoyable. I love pebble tossers and will continue to do it.

Pebble Tossers is a great non- profit because there are only 2 fabulous women that run this organization. They spend hours of their own time filing the needs of the community. Also, the Pebble Tosser site makes finding a volunteer opportunity easy as well as a central place to "bank" your volunteer hours. The saying "is it is better to give than to receive"- pebble tossers shows the ripple effect from spending time in service helping others will hopefully continue the simple acts of kindness.

As a mom of two young children and a long-time volunteer of several organizations, I understand the importance of instilling the spirit of giving through contributions of time and effort to assist others. Pebble Tossers is an amazing organization that allows my kids to discover volunteering by matching their hobbies and interests with the many non-profits we have in Atlanta. The outcome for me as a parent is that I see my children having fun and learning to give back. Pebble Tossers has made a subsantial impact in our community through its efforts to bring awareness to the act of giving back and providing volunteering opportunities for our children now and ultimately in their future.

Pebble Tossers is a dynamic organization that is fueled by the passions of its principals. They put worthy non-profit agencies in touch with families that want to give of their time & talent. Research is carefully done on the agencies with projects, and families can easily select opportunities that suit them best. Their website is easy to navigate, and Pebble Tossers does a great job of communicating with everyone on a regular basis when significant vounteer needs surface. The metro Atlanta area is so fortunate to have this research as a way for all of us to show more love.
