Inside jobs, outside jobs, big jobs, little jobs, there is a job for everyone. Bring the whole family and a picnic lunch (no childcare provided). Students who participate will get a homework pass and service hours will be signed off.

Here are some tools and supplies that will be needed. If you can think of anything else, bring it. (Or if there is something you particularly like doing, bring the tools for it and dig in!)

  • Gardening tools: hoe, rake, leaf rake, shovel, weeding tools, gloves, blower, mower, string trimmer, big garbage bags, litter grabber...
  • Cleaning supplies: all purpose cleaner, disinfectant cleaner, windex, rubber gloves, rags, paper towels, squeegee, bucket, long handled duster, shop vac...
  • Tools for a special project: paint brush, step ladder, power washer, flowering plants for beds...

Last year was a great success and we hope even more families will participate this year. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Currey: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
