***Update: Danielle will be at Children's Park on Saturday, March 17 and March 19-23 and still needs more volunteers to help paint.***
We need your help! If you... are looking for a way to be part of the new Playscape at Children's Park, come paint with us! Danielle will be there today through Friday from 8am-6pm. Check in with her and she will assign you a task. You must be at least 13 years old and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear clothing that you do not mind getting paint on and closed toes shoes are a must since this is an active construction site. Please park at Rio Vista Park, Veramendi Plaza Park, or in the parking spots on CM Allen near Children's Park.
