One Bus, One Cause: Griffin Elementary School

March 22nd, 2014

Duration: Single Day
Date: Mar 22, 2014

Griffin Elementary is located in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood in Los Angeles. The school was built in the 1880′s and is the central point of the neighborhood. Griffin’s community dedicates itself to teaching their students three important values: to be respectful, responsible, and ready. The staff along with their principal works diligently to provide the students resources that will enhance their educational trajectory. Their Principal, Ricardo Romero says, “I believe that all children deserve an opportunity to be challenged and exposed to a rigorous curriculum. It is my expectation that students come to school eager to learn and teachers come ready to teach them.” We love what this school community is doing, and we are excited that we get to partner with them. Keep it up, Griffin Elementary!
r On Saturday, March 22nd, the Volunteer Leadership Program is sending 50 spirited UCLA students to prime and paint the bottom and front portions of the campus bungalows. They will go from off-white to bright blue, and it will help brighten up the lively playground. This project was started at Volunteer Day 2013 with volunteers painting the doors and stairwells the same shade of blue, and this VLP project will help in the next stage of painting. The project is expected to be completed on Volunteer Day 2014, when the final group of volunteers paint the backsides of the bungalows. It is sure to be a fun and productive project – all are encouraged to come out and help! Lunch, snacks, transportation, and all needed supplies will be provided.
r This project is a collaboration between the Volunteer Center and the Alumni Scholars Club. The Volunteer Leadership Program gives students the opportunity to work directly with the Center by planning and leading their own community service projects in Los Angeles.
