A corps member and Starbucks volunteer.
City Year Washington, DC AmeriCorps Members are almost finished their service year, but that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down! Since Martin Luther King Day we’ve hosted two service days and engaged nearly 300 volunteers in over 1,000 hours of service!
At a service day hosted for members of the Field School Community, volunteers made 150 PB&J Sandwiches and painted 10 signs for use at Ingenuity Prep Charter School. Those and other projects resulted in $11,374.86 in total value donated back to the city of Washington, DC.
For Starbucks Global Youth Service Day, Starbucks partners volunteered with City Year at Hart Middle School where City Year hosted Student Service Week – a week-long program held over DC Public Schools’ spring break for high school students to earn community service hours needed for graduation. Together, the students and volunteers from Starbucks painted new and rehabilitated old murals throughout the school and made arts and crafts kits for Project Sunshine, which supports children and families living with medical challenges. Those and other projects resulted in $30,952 in total value donated back to the city of Washington, DC.
We’re so grateful for your continued support and can’t wait to share the results of our last few service projects this spring.
