2011 DVGBC Earth Day of Service

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?" - Martin Luther King Jr.

Get your Hands Dirty at the 2011 Earth Day of Service

Volunteer for the day and make a local impact with your gift of time
Saturday, April 30, 2011
8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Whether you feel it important to work in the community, advance another worthy cause, or to develop as a person, volunteering offers many benefits - including our appreciation of the gift of your time and expertise. DVGBC Emerging Professionals, Urban Tree Connection, students and teachers from Kensington CAPA High School, Earth Force, Philly Food Forests, New Kensington Community Development Corporation, City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, and East Kensington Neighbors Association will partner in this volunteer day of service at the high school.

• Construct an urban organic vegetable garden at Kensington High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, the first LEED Platinum high school in Pennsylvania.

• OR help paint a mural on site!

• Take part in creating a legacy project in Kensington that will serve the community indefinitely.

The Mayor's Office of Sustainability will be volunteering throughout the day and Mayor Michael Nutter will be in attendance as well to kick off one of our volunteer shifts!

Volunteers and donations are needed to make this event a success!
