Georgia United Credit Union call for volunteers for Oakcliff Elementary School Crashers makeover on July 22nd & 23rd
DULUTH, GA (June 14, 2016) — Because of the shared strength and civic pride that occurs whenever the community supports local schools- Georgia United Credit Union invites you to get involved in their 3rd annual School Crashers school improvement project at Oakcliff Elementary School this summer. Oakcliff Elementary School, built in 1965 and converting to a theme school in 1996, is located at 3151 Willow Oak Way in Doraville and has 740 students and 80 faculty and staff. This “school makeover” project will take place July 22nd – 23rd, so the project can be completed in time for the new school year in August.
Join Georgia United in working alongside school and community volunteers in partnership with the DeKalb County School District – to provide improvement projects such as building and grounds renovations – to enhance the learning environment for Oakcliff’s students, faculty and staff. Oakcliff Elementary was chosen from hundreds of nominations from schools across the state, to receive Georgia United’s 2016 School Crashers grand prize.
How can you help? There are several ways you can be involved:
o Specifically if you have painting, landscaping or construction skills – there is a need for skilled crew leaders
o No matter what skill level you are, all are encouraged to volunteer
o Bi-lingual volunteers are especially needed as many of the volunteer parents will be Hispanic
Through an in-kind donation (e.g., paint, equipment, landscaping plants, etc.)
o Donate food or water for volunteers
Through corporate donations to fund extra school improvements (benches, stage curtains, etc.)
