“D.C. Public Schools will hold its ninth annual Beautification Day on Saturday August 24 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. DCPS needs volunteers for a variety of projects to help clean up and spruce up schools in preparation for the first day of school. Activities will include gardening and landscaping, organizing books and libraries, painting, flower planting and more.
Volunteers are needed at nearly 100 schools city-wide. This is a great opportunity to contribute to neighborhood schools. Please click here to volunteer or donate supplies.”
