From a reader:

Next Saturday, August 23, we will be helping with the DC Public Schools “Beautification Day.” We’re looking for volunteers who will join us in completing a few clean-up and landscaping projects at Powell Elementary School from 8:00am till shortly after 12:00pm. Powell is located at 1350 Upshur Street, NW, Washington, DC 20011. There will be snacks, water and a t-shirt for all volunteers. If you’re interested in joining the fun, please e-mail Scott Jackson at [email protected] org.

Get involved — Volunteer “Job” openings

If you’re looking for experience running a nonprofit organization, want to further refine your skills, or are just interested in helping DC Public schools in a deeper way, we would love to have you involved as a member of the Organizing Committee. We’re looking for people with skills in project management, painting, landscaping, training, fund raising, sales, marketing, media relations, public outreach, web development, database development, social networking, or special event planning. If you have experience (or interests) in any of these areas, we would like to talk to you about our numerous leadership opportunities. Please contact Scott Jackson at [email protected] org by September 1st for more information.”
