For the third year in a row, a local service group is building teams of volunteers who will give up a Sunday afternoon in August to help Newcastle elementary school teachers prepare their classrooms.
Volunteers are needed to organize, decorate, clean and build supplies like bulletin boards. Outside work is needed too with power washers and landscaping tasks.
The Jubilee Day of Service will be from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Aug. 12 followed by a barbecue at Lake Boren Park. Volunteers are needed to serve Hazelwood Elementary School and Newcastle Elementary School.The goal is to assign teams of volunteers to each teacher who wants help getting their classroom ready for the new school year.
Last year, members of the Seattle Revival Center, Beit Tikvah and Emmaus Road Church helped 11 area teachers at Hazelwood and Newcastle elementary schools ready their rooms for the school year.
Volunteers may sign up for this year’s event at http://erchurch.wufoo.com/forms/z7x4m1/.
In order to make sure there are enough volunteers, people are asked to sign up before the deadline on the last day of school June 21.
