One-day project to make a difference at Schnell School

From page B2 | March 24, 2014 |

One day of volunteering can make an impact on a lot of other people — just one day.

On Saturday, April 5 the Kiwanis Club of Placerville is mustering more than 100 volunteers from its club and its service leadership groups to give a few hours of hands-on service at Louisiana Schnell School in Placerville.

Each year, Kiwanis clubs across the world celebrate a global day of service that unites the entire Kiwanis family of Kiwanis, Aktion Clubs, Key Clubs and Builder’s Club.

This year, Kiwanis International expects Kiwanis One Day to contribute almost one million service hours around the world in a single day.

Maggie Bush is the project chairwoman for the day of service at Schnell School.

“Finding a project big enough to accommodate lots of people for a few hours can be challenging. My girls attended Schnell School and I know that there are always lots of smaller projects that need to get done but are lower on the priority list. Painting the picnic benches, helping to weed, refreshing the paint of the large world map, as well as providing a shade tree for the kindergarten area are all great projects to help the school stay vibrant,” said Bush.

“We at Schnell School continue to be touched by the outpouring of community support shown toward our school,” said Schnell Principal Patrick Paturel. “The Placerville community is one with strong roots. It is through community groups such as the Placerville Kiwanis that these roots continue to grow and strengthen … The upcoming work day on April 5 will be one in which all people involved, both the givers and receivers, will be strengthening our community.”

Last year, Placerville Kiwanis and its Service Leadership Programs cleaned up George F. Duffey Park and dedicated playground equipment they donated to the park on Kiwanis One Day.

“Annually, Placerville Kiwanis provides more than $30,000 in scholarships and grants to programs throughout El Dorado County,” said Placerville Kiwanis President Paul Zappettini. “The collaboration with our SLPs with this project is a great opportunity for our young people to give back to their schools and communities.”

The project work time will be 8:30-11:30 a.m. at Louisiana Schnell School, 2871 Schnell School Road in Placerville, on Saturday, April 5.

People who wish to volunteer to help are welcome and should check in with Bush at the school on April 5.
