Over the weekend, a team of Arrowstreet staff members brought along family and friends to participate in the Green Apple Day of Service. Like last year, the group volunteered at an Arrowstreet-designed school building — this time we served at the Kipp Academy in Lynn, a building completed in 2012. We were able to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather and prepared the grounds and landscaping for the coming winter by weeding and trimming, sweeping the parking surface, cleaning up trash, and moving the school’s raised garden beds.
The Green Apple Day of Service is a nationwide event in which community members take the opportunity to volunteer at their local schools and make them healthier, safer, and more productive learning environments. Learn more about how you can participate in next year’s Green Apple Day here.
