Volunteers spruce up Golden Empire

e-Connections Post Golden Empire

Golden Empire Elementary School was the proud recipient of a campus make-over courtesy of First Covenant Church and Rosemont community volunteers.

The congregation chose Golden Empire as a recipient of the “Achieving Community Through Service” (ACTS) Day event. Approximately 25 volunteers made a difference by sprucing up the school.

The cafeteria and quad area is sparkling following a deep-cleaning and polishing by so many helpers.Volunteers were involved with painting projects, including painting character education words around the central quad area.

Those that worked in the garden and with the landscaping had their hands full, but the areas are nicely manicured now. The garden will be in tip-top shape and ready for the students in our Garden Club to plant this coming week.

While the volunteers were left tired at the end of the day, they left knowing that the students, staff and community will greatly appreciate and benefit from their altruistic efforts!
