Birdland — Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Mike Smith will be busy on Friday.
They won’t be breaking down film on the 2011 draft prospects.
No, they won’t be gasing up Arthur Blank’s jet and flying off on a big scouting trip to Montana to find the next Kroy Biermann or Shann Schillinger.
Dimitroff and Smith will have a rake in their hands sprucing up the landscape at the Walters Boys and Girls club in Gainesville or a paint brush helping school children at the Challenge Child in Gainesville paint the exterior and interior
of their school.
It’s “All Associates Community Day” on Friday for the entire organization of Arthur Blank’s businesses from the Falcons and Family Foundation Office.
Employees from the Atlanta Falcons, AMB Group, Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers, PGA Tour Super Stores and the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation will go out in the community together as one organization to try to make a difference.
The key word is “All” associates. From Blank and his wife Stephanie Blank to Rich McKay and all of Reggie Roberts‘ communications department crew will be working on Friday.
This is the second year for the event. Last year, Blank’s associates partnered with Park Pride and completed projects at Cleopas Johnson Park , Washington Park, and Vine City park in Atlanta.
