BOTHELL — More than 2,500 volunteers are expected to be on hand to help 26 Northshore schools prepare for the upcoming school year.
On Sunday, Aug. 25, volunteers will be weeding, mulching, painting and setting up classrooms — all part of the annual Community Serve Day, which serves both Northshore and Lake Washington school districts. Northshore’s Community Serve Day is made possible though the strong partnership and support of the Northshore Community Church and several PTAs across the District.
Every task from decorating bulletin boards, wiping down desks and chairs, organizing library books to the larger outside projects will contribute to a successful year for students, teachers and school administrators.
In the weeks leading up to Community Serve Day, Northshore’s grounds crew distributed mulch, play chip and gravel to each school site. Following Community Serve Day, the grounds crew will remove all garden debris piled up by volunteers.
Last year, the District had more than 2,200 volunteers, which included Northshore families, church members and other community members. This year's Community Serve Day already has many volunteers signed up, however we are still in need of more than 800 volunteers. Volunteers are encouraged to visit www.comunityserveday.org to sign up for a nearby school.
