THE GREAT PAINT


Welcome to the first Annual Creekside / Squaw Valley Prep “The Great Paint” Community Service Project!




WHAT

June 8, 2018 from 9am – 1pm – We will be helping the US Forest Service restore the natural beauty of Donner Summit by painting over the graffiti on the EXTERIOR of the train tunnels. (Don’t worry, the impressive interior art is preserved, only the exteriors of the sheds that disturb the natural landscape are removed each year.)



HOW

Just sign your child up! 9am – 1pm on Donner Summit June 8th. PLEASE SIGN UP HERE. Then…. Show up! If you are an an adult and willing to either chaperone kids to help keep us safe up there – OR just bring a snack or beverage to share with the volunteers – please put it in the notes.



WHY?

Our kids and our school benefit greatly from donations and discounts from the parents and professional community around us, as well as the benefits of the incredible natural landscape and environment we use as our playground. The Creekside / Squaw Valley Prep enrichment program gives the kids the opportunity to RECEIVE (education, activity, skills, and entertainment from this community) but also the opportunity to participate and GIVE BACK to the community and environment that takes care of us. It is very difficult to find meaningful, hands-on projects that really make a difference that are appropriate to this age group and we are very lucky to have this opportunity, thanks to the trust of the USFS and the generosity of Kelly Brothers Painting.
