This event has reached maximum capacity with over 100 volunteers and registration is now closed. Additional events will be posted soon.

Join The Mission Continues and Americorps VISTA members from across the region as we serve in honor of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We will be in the St. Louis Promise Zone. The Promise Zone’s six goals include increasing economic activity, increasing workforce readiness, improving educational outcomes, improving health & wellness, reducing serious & violent crime and developing sustainable communities. Our service will take place at Twillman Elementary School, where we will be assisting with catching up on general maintenance items that are currently backlogged. This will include repairing walls, floorboards, painting doorways and trim, stairs, and other items.

The school also needs to replace a small set of lower cabinets in the teacher's lounge that are badly water damaged. This would include removing and reinstalling the sink. If anyone has this expertise or has connections to someone who does, please contact us.

What To Wear :

Wear clothes that can get dirty or paint splattered.

What To Bring :

A few additional stepladders will be helpful to paint door trim. They should be 6' or less.

Parking :

There is plenty of parking in the school lot or around the building.

Inclement Weather Plan :

If snow makes travel unsafe, we will contact you within 24 hours of the project with an update.
