March 2024 Beautification Project – Curry Elementary School
March 23 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Join Keep Tempe Beautiful on Saturday, March 23 to spread wood chips at the newly planted desert garden at Curry Elementary School.
This is a neighborhood grant project that adds 21 trees and numerous other low water use plants. The wood chips will create a cool environment, retain moisture for the plants/trees, and create great soil. It is recommended that volunteers wear a mask when working with wood chips. Once all the wood chips are spread, we will do a little bit of trash cleanup in the existing garden, nearby alley, and Selleh Park (adjacent to the Curry Parking lot).
We will meet at the Curry School Parking lot located on Meadow Dr. near Country Club Way.
Curry Elementary School
1974 E. Meadow Dr.
Bring water, sunscreen, hat, gloves, and a face mask. Your time slot will start and end on time; we won’t ask you to stay longer.
There is no minimum age to participate in this event and we will have staff on-site to sign any documents for community service requirements.
1 Hour Shifts – 3 Shifts in Total: 8am-9am, 9am-10am, 10am-11am.
You are welcome to sign up for one session or multiple.
We are also looking for Day Chairs to assist in managing the event!
Day Chairs are the life blood of our operations and are the first step to greater leadership opportunities within Keep Tempe Beautiful. Some of the things Day Chairs are tasked with are event setup / teardown, sign-in / sign-outs, in charge of the event raffle, parking lot attendee, diverting trash from recyclables, photo / video taker, and more! (these aren’t things that you choose, rather, everyone does a little of each depending where the needs are during the event).
To show our appreciation for the longer time commitment you are making, each Day Chair will receive:
- One KTB Water Bottle
- One FREE State Forty Eight Keep Tempe Beautiful Branded Neon Tee to be worn and utilized during the event for working as a Day Chair. (Please note that only one set will be given regardless of the number of shifts you work).
- Public recognition of your KTB volunteerism, including your name listed in the post-event summaries of each event you worked.
