Idea 24: Paint a Classroom

One way to volunteer is to get a group together and come down to First Place to do a one-day project. Projects are often painting a classroom and hallways and also include outside and playground clean-up.

A great example is Vision Quest, a local company who offered their employees to First Place for the day. They came to First Place on September 4th; sleeves rolled up and ready to tackle any job that needed to be done. They painted 2 classrooms and the multi-purpose room. Not only are they hard workers, but have a sense of humor that kept everyone laughing and that made the painting go faster. They did a professional job and came back a few weeks later to finish up one of the classrooms. Vision Quest, you’re welcome back any time!

If you are interested in doing a group volunteer project, contact our Volunteer Manager Joyce Scoggins at 206 323 6715.
