Shelby County Schools needs volunteers to help clean up schools in the Memphis area.
Volunteer Memphis, Clean Memphis, and Memphis City Beautiful are teaming up with SCS to spruce up nine schools before the first day of school starts, the district said in a press release.
No supplies will be necessary for volunteers who are interested. Cleaning supplies and refreshments will all be provided.
Principals at Dexter Elementary, Highland Oaks Elementary, Hamilton Elementary, Scenic Hills Elementary, Richland Elementary, Rozelle Elementary, Sharpe Elementary, A.B. Hill Elementary and Vollentine Elementary all have projects they need help with. Those tasks include gardening, painting, and moving furniture.
The beautification event takes place 8 a.m. July 22. If you can’t volunteer and want to donate supplies for the event, contact Andrea Hill, Director of Volunteer Memphis, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
