Day of Maintenance and Help at Pisgah View Head Star Center
The LA 31 Class childcare team launched the second community project with Pisgah View Head Start Center on April 13, 2013 at 9:30 AM. The childcare team chose Pisgah View Center, the home of a head start program for kids ages three through five, from a variety of organizations in need of volunteer help. Pisgah View Center currently serves approximately 90 children from diverse demographics. Lorraine Riddle, an Early Childhood Education Supervisor, has worked closely with LA 31 class members and has been with the program, which started in 1969, for 31 years!
What Was Accomplished
The service projects included multiple activities such as building a new garden box area, redistributing and fluffing the padding chips in the playground, washing all outside windows of the building, and more. “We are very blessed and thankful that Pisgah View Head Start Center was chosen as one of the projects of the LA 31 class,” states Lorraine, “Pisgah View depends entirely on volunteers to provide the upkeep of their grounds and equipment.” “We are also excited about the garden box where the children can be involved in preparing soil, planting seeds, and watching flowers and vegetables grow,” she continues.
