Last week Guadalupe School had some special visitors with a mission to give back to the community through service! Both Salesforce and Junior Achievement sent groups of volunteers to be put to work helping out at the school.
Salesforce is a consistent volunteer partner of Guadalupe School's, and has helped on a variety of projects including math tutoring and collecting school supplies. This time, the team took a new approach by funding and executing a playground project that made preschool teachers very happy. They replaced the dirt under the preschool swing set with wood chips, in order to make sure children do not encounter muddy puddles under the swings each time it rains. The Salesforce team did not hesitate to put on their gloves, and pick up a shovel or push a wheelbarrow! We are so grateful for their hard work and contribution.
Junior Achievement got in on the fun by sending accountants from all around the Salt Lake area to teach kid-friendly finance and business classes for the annual "JA in a Day" event. Charter School students all the way from kindergarten to sixth grade enjoyed learning new things like how to apply mathematics in practical situations, saving money, making profit, and learning what a supply chain is! It was fun for them to learn these concepts directly from community members who apply them in their real jobs.
Guadalupe School loves welcoming volunteer teams, and we are very thankful for the contributions of our community partners. Whether you are an individual, family, community group, or team of employees, don't hesitate to find out how you can get involved at Guadalupe School!
