Volunteers To Help With Staring Ed Ctr. At Eden Park Clean Up
- October 2, 2008
Volunteers from across the community are scheduled to join staff, their spouses and students Saturday, October 4, for a clean up at the Staring Education Center at Eden Park, 1650 N. Acadian Way. The clean up begins at 9 am and ends at 5 pm.
The Education Center, an East Baton Rouge Parish School System site for over-age students, was relocated from its 1919 Staring Lane location in August due to damage from Hurricane Gustav. It now is located in the former Eden Park Elementary School, which closed last spring.
Some of the 125 students and 21 staff members will be on hand to clean and paint the buildings. In addition, volunteers from the community, including several area churches, 100 Black Men, LSU students and more, will help out. There will be a hamburger cook-out for the volunteers.
In addition, donations for school improvements have been coming in from the community. If you would like to volunteer for the clean up or make a donation, contact Principal Clara Joseph at (225) 336-3393.
