Doctors, Nurses, and Staff Help Refurbish Schools in San Francisco and Daly City

 

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 17, 2019 – More than 150 Kaiser Permanente volunteers are honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by rolling up their sleeves and refurbishing school yards in San Francisco and Daly City. Safe play areas are a big part of making sure potential is supported, nurtured, and celebrated. This helps both children and the community stay healthy.

 

Kaiser Permanente is partnering with Gordon J. Lau Elementary School in San Francisco on various beautification projects throughout the school. The school has a culturally and ethnically diverse student population. Kaiser Permanente believes in validating, promoting, and celebrating cultural and linguistic diversity on a daily basis. Our volunteers are proud to help make this school shine. They will be painting and cleaning several areas of the school and rehabbing the garden area.

 

Kaiser Permanente volunteers will also be giving their time on Monday to John F. Kennedy Elementary School in Daly City. Volunteers will be divided into teams to assist in painting projects, staining benches, landscaping, installing solar lights, and updating a vegetable garden.
