FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Hundreds of volunteers clean and beautify school grounds

More than three hundred volunteers from faith-based organizations, parent groups, and the community joined together August 18 and 25 for the Gresham-Barlow School District’s “Community Care Day.”

Volunteers worked on several beautification projects, which included pulling weeds, raking, spreading bark dust, pruning, and painting.

Due to budget constraints, the Gresham-Barlow School District is limited in its upkeep of school grounds.

“We are so thankful to the individuals who came out this year and every year to get our school grounds ready for students,” said Gresham-Barlow School District Facilities Director Terry Taylor. “Volunteers from East Hill Church adopted thirteen of our nineteen schools and thanks to them and the other churches involved in the effort, our school grounds will be in great shape on September 4.”

In addition to East Hill Church, Cornerstone Church, First Baptist Church, Good Shepherd Community Church, Grace Community Church, Gresham Bible Church, and Mountainview Christian Church participated in the event.

The Gresham-Barlow School District has been receiving “Community Care Day” help from churches and volunteers since 2004.
