Get ready for a fun and productive couple of days!
Volunteering is a wonderful way to build community and everyone benefits from a strong community. Additionally, not only our current children, but children for years to come will benefit from our new play-structure! Thank you for recognizing the importance of play to the healthy social, emotion, and physical development of children. Your efforts will help us provide a full and enriching educational experience for the children of Lakeside school.
Volunteer for the Playground
Our Identified Volunteer needs are:
2 people with strong construction experience, capable of reading site plans. These positions will be our team Leaders and will require the most time. There will be a couple of pre- construction meetings in addition to the two work weekends.
I person to organize and lead a volunteer team to meet the delivery truck, unload the equipment and recycle the packing materials
Volunteers to supply food & beverages for the work crews
Lots of volunteers (15-20) on Both Saturdays (all day 8am – 5pm) as well as the construction Leaders. Heavy equipment needed: bob cat or other heavy equipment to move sand, auger for drilling and cement mixer.
4-10 Volunteers and a fork lift to unload equipment and recycle packing material Monday or Tuesday afternoon October 16 or 17. (We will only be able to predict the arrival of the delivery truck within a four-hour window.)
Focused team of volunteers and construction Leaders on Sunday October 15 and October 22
Please let us know how you would like to be involved. Please also reach out to others in our community who may have skills or equipment. This would be a perfect opportunity to include future Lakeside Families.
