Volunteer at Lea Elementary on Philadelphia Cares Day Sat. 10/22
Henry C. Lea Elementary at 47th and Locust will be participating in Greater Philadelphia Cares Day on Saturday October 22, 2011 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Lea will be receiving approximately 50-75 volunteers from PCD but would like to have additional volunteers from the community. Philadelphia Cares Day representatives have visited Lea Elementary and are excited to have community volunteers. The volunteer day will include a paint day as part of the Lea Visual Artss program and additional clean up around the school. The West Philly Coalition for Neighborhood Schools is recruiting community volunteers and also organizing a childcare room.
If you would like to volunteer at Lea as a community member, please RSVP through this private Doodle poll: Doodle: Lea Volunteer Day and it is especially helpful to list your email address in the "Your Name" section. Thanks!
In addition to the 50-75 volunteers directly from Philadelphia Cares Day, at Lea Elementary at 47th and Locust on October 22nd from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. there will be a couple dozen volunteers from the community including members of the West Philly Coalition for Neighborhood Schools, Renewal Church, City Church and Vineyard Community Church. The day will be a Paint Day for the Lea Visual Arts program as well as a clean up day around the school. The weather seems to be holding out for some cleaning up in the schoolyard, too.
People in-charge/to look for are Ms. Baretta Massey, upper school science teacher, and Mr. Anthony Brown, the parent ombudsman.
Mr. David Fox's (upper school Social Studies teacher) room in 313 will be a childcare/movie room with materials for art projects etc. Additional help with the room (perhaps parents switching off) appreciated. Please BYO toys.
The Gold Standard Cafe is generously donating refreshments for volunteers and the University City District is also bringing clean up supplies.
Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow! It is sure to be a very productive day.
