Volunteers Create New Look for De Zavala Elementary

Students at De Zavala Elementary School have a new place to play thanks to volunteers from Rebuilding Together, Carter’s Kids and Lowe’s.

Nearly 200 volunteers, many of them parents of students, converged on the school on Nov. 6 and 7. They gutted neighboring De Zavala Park, where the students play, planted beautiful new landscaping, and built swing sets, jungle gyms and more.

But that’s not all the volunteers did. They also gave the school’s flowerbeds and courtyards a makeover and created an herb garden.

The projects were part of a $60,000 community revitalization grant from Lowe’s.
