Neighbors are coming together this Saturday, March 31, to lend a hand to Garrison Elementary School at 1200 S Street NW. Volunteers from Nellie’s Sports Bar, Anywhere Goes and the Logan Circle Community Association (LCCA) will rake, weed, mulch and shovel in the schoolyard from 10 am to 1 pm.

Want to pitch in? There’s plenty to do and no special skills are required. There will be water and lemonade to keep everyone hydrated. If you got ’em, bring gloves, shovels and/or rakes, but feel free to arrive empty-handed.

Garrison’s main entrance is on S Street between 12th and 13th Streets, but look for the volunteers behind the building. (And this being a school, they can always use a bag of books so here’s your chance to donate those old best-sellers to a worthy cause.) Garrison serves students from pre-K through 5th Grade.

This is a rain or shine event, and the organizers say, “You don’t have to come for the entire three hours.” The group will head to Nellie’s Sport Bar (9th and U Streets NW) afterward for social time.
