ALL HANDS ON DECK (with shovels and rakes!)

I'm THRILLED to say that we've hammered down the Joint Use Agreement between the City of Worcester and the Worcester Public Schools on playgrounds! This means that our playgrounds will be OFFICIALLY open to kids during non-school daylight hours!

BUT, before the big announcement splash, we have some work to do: as part of the agreement, the city is paying for NEW MULCH for our playgrounds! This will roll out over the next several weeks. To make this manageable, we'll have WPS oversight, but we need some volunteer labor to get the mulch spread.

We’re looking for volunteers who could serve at one of the 5 playground sites below on Wednesday July 8, 9am-1pm. You don’t have to come for the whole time, but we’re asking that the community pitch in to this important effort by spreading the mulch with us that day. So grab a rake or a shovel and come down to a playground to help support play in Worcester’s neighborhoods!
Wednesday, July 8th, 9am-1pm:
Flagg St Elementary School, 115 Flagg St
May St Elementary School, 265 May St
Lincoln St Elementary School, 549 Lincoln St
Norrback Elementary School, 44 Malden St
Roosevelt Elementary School, 1006 Grafton St
We will have opportunities at other schools on the following two Wednesdays. Please be on the look out for more information on those.
