2.  NewtonServes at Day School this Sunday 5/4 – Need volunteers

NewtonServes is a Day of Community Service that brings together over 1,000 volunteers of all ages to complete more than 50 community projects for the benefit of numerous non-profit organizations and City of Newton departments. Last year, NCLS partnered up with Day School and accomplished many things: painting rooms and hallways, cleaning windows, raking leaves, sprucing up the courtyard, among other projects.  This is a great volunteering opportunity for us to foster the sense of community.  We have a list of projects at Day School for this Sunday:

If you would like to participate the projects, the sign up sheet is here:

Please note:  1.   NewtonServes will run from 1-5.           2.  The organizer will provide all materials for painting, volunteers that plan to work outside are asked to bring gloves, rakes, and a wheelbarrow if they have one.     3.  Yes, school-aged kids are welcome to help!

We encourage you to join this meaningful community service!
