School Beautification Project

6/20/14 Fri (8:30 AM - 12:00 PM)
Linda Vista Elementary School
100 Kirk Ave, San Jose
Contact:Evan Frazer (evan.frazer [at] uwsv [dot] org)


On June 20th and for a few days before, United Way is organizing a large school beautification project for its Day of Action on Friday June 20th from 8:30-12:00pm.

Early academic achievement is a key to success in life. Students perform better in a good environment for learning. Help restore the shine at Linda Vista Elementary School in East San Jose. From the playground, to the cafeteria, to the classrooms there are opportunities for you to paint, clean and redecorate to enhance the environment and create a warm and welcoming school.

Contact Evan Frazer (Peru '09-'12), who works at the United Way and will be at the event, if you have any questions.
