Paint Day at the YMCA
The YMCA needs to paint a large classroom so they can start free classes on Saturdays in art, theater, music, percussion, dance, and handicrafts for students ages 8 to 15. They need 8 to 10 volunteers for this great paint project to help the youth from Curundu who also learn about values and self-esteem.

Ecostudio, POC Mathew Hotsko
EcoStudio is participating in the “Good Deeds Day” for their second year. Last year they prepared plants in their nursery and rebagged seeds that had gotten too big for their community pots. This year they are moving the plants and palms into bigger pots to prepare them for the National Reforestation Day hosted by MiAmbiente in June.
Additionally, they have activities for people of all ages, including working with clay to make pots for repotting plants, using pallets to create flower pots and vertical plant stands, setting up irrigation systems, jewelry workshops and playing around with greenhouse designs using reusable materials. Teachers will lead groups of volunteers in each area. They have speakers for guests who are just there to watch.
TIME: 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Bring your gloves, hats, digging tools AND a reusable container for drinking water.
