Volunteers were not afraid to get their boots dirty at Serv-a-palooza this year. They tackled projects like painting 51+ houses, building a patio for Veterans, gifting 460 students with new shoes and creating a brand-new teacher’s lounge. These projects and more took place in the city of Manchester, all of which impacted people in need.
460 STUDENTS GIFTED WITH TIMBERLAND BOOTS
One of our sites was the Gossler Elementary School. Here, we held a “Footprints Fair” gifting 460 students with a new pair of Timberland boots, backpack, books, and socks. We did not stop there, we gave a facelift to the teacher’s lounge, painted murals all over the school, and painted pavement games and murals outside to bring color and positive energy to the space. One of the volunteers said, “We had a student stop us in the gym and said it was great day for a new pair of boots because his shoe just broke.”
