Spring Spruce Up Volunteers
"Play is the work of childhood" - Jean Piaget

Play is essential to the healthy development of children and adolescents. Play influences the development of fine and gross motor skills, language, socialization, personal awareness, emotional well-being, creativity, problem solving and learning ability. The goal of Preschool Spruce Up is to ensure early learning environments are well equipped to stimulate the social, emotional and academic development of our youngest children.

Join United Way for Preschool Spruce Up as we upgrade play facilities at early childhood education centers throughout the county. Tasks will include painting, equipment assembly and installation, gardening, cleaning and more. Ideal for large groups or individuals. All ages welcomed.
