Our DollarDays family joined the Valley of the Sun United Way’s Operation Uplift event at Barcelona Elementary School in Glendale, Arizona. Operation Uplift is the United Way’s volunteer vehicle for thousands of volunteers to help strengthen schools, grow local food systems and address community needs through hard and rewarding work in Maricopa County.
Staff joined other volunteers to clean the Barcelona Elementary campus, landscape, plant, re-stripe a basketball court and create a new garden area. This was no easy task, but they did it with smiles on. Students will be able to reap the reward immediately. A big thank you to all the volunteers and to the Valley of the Sun United Way for allowing us to participate.
