Calling on all HandsOn Inland Empire volunteers! We’re bringing smiles to children’s faces and we need YOUR help to make it happen! Over 500 volunteers are needed to help with our school makeover project occurring on Saturday, April 27th from 8am-4pm in the city of Redlands. Volunteers are also needed on Friday, April 26th from 2:30pm-5:00pm to help with prep work for the following day’s projects. On Saturday, volunteers will be adding paint and color to the playground to help build school pride and to encourage students to become more physically active on the playground. 

This school makeover project is part of Inland Empire United Way’s celebration of National Volunteer Week, which occurs April 21st-April 27th. National Volunteer Week is about taking action, encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change—discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to foster positive transformation. We hope that you will join us in driving social change in the community!

Help transform the school grounds into a dynamic environment that is visually stimulating and that the teachers, parents, students, and the community can be proud of! All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age to participate.  In addition, all volunteers are provided with breakfast, lunch, water, snacks, and free event t-shirt. Grab your family, friends, and co-workers and sign up today! To sign up for a project, click here.

A special thank you to our sponsors: Starbucks, Evolution Fresh, Target, and Beaver Medical Group. Without their support, projects like these could not happen!
