We want to share with you why we feel that this year's project was a success. Here are the final outcomes from our 4 service project sites:
- Wilson Elementary School: painted 13 walls, 1 door, 1 railing, and 1 bathroom; reshelved 75 books and weeded 75 books from school library; and organized 450 books onto carts for families and children to take home as a part of the free book program
- USU Permaculture Garden: removed 800lbs of bricks, dug & mulched 100ft of irrigation trench, spread 20 bags of mulch, planted 3 trees & 15 smaller plants, and created 1 path. This garden is part of a sustainability project that will serve as a learning site for students as well as community garden.
- Bridger Elementary: stenciled 1 large outline of Utah with counties on playground, repainted tether ball lines, painted 1 hopscotch game, and painted 1 four-square game
- Glasses with Lion's Club @ Senior Center: worked alongside senior volunteers and sorted, counted, and packaged 2800 glasses to be distributed in Senegal next year to students and adults pursuing educational goals
We were also very lucky to partner with a local photographer, Jesse Walker, who captured moments from each of our service sites on Service Project Day. Please take a moment to visit our gallery on his website:
