Volunteer Compton 7/20/19

Volunteer with United Way of Greater Los Angeles and The Compton Initiative, non-profit charitable group that organizes over 1,500 volunteers to do quarterly service projects within Compton in efforts to bring hope and restoration to the city.
During "Volunteer Compton," folks will come from across Southern California including colleges, churches and other service groups to work side by side with Compton residents and neighbors.
In one day, over 1,500 volunteers are sent to 30 different worksites. The worksites include 
painting: an Elementary School, murals, nearby homes, block-clean ups, planting community gardens and other similar community beautification efforts. 

The workday starts with all 2,000 of our expected volunteers arriving at the rally location as early as 6:45am. Volunteers will sign or submit release waivers, receive name tags, then enjoy a light breakfast. The breakfast includes, coffee, muffins, fruit, yogurt and some other small items.
After Breakfast, volunteers find their worksite on the poles. Local Compton leadership speakers will start the rally around 7:15am. By 7:45am, all 2,000 volunteers are sent out to 30 different worksites. The worksites include painting, cleaning and building great relationships with other volunteers. Volunteers arrive at their assigned worksite by 8:00am.
Volunteers work at their worksite until around noon. Then pizzas for lunch will be delivered.
