St. Anthony North Health Campus partnered with Sherrelwood Elementary and Rebuilding Together Metro Denver for a “Safety, Education and Beautification Day”, during which volunteers convened en masse at Sherrelwood to paint, refurbish the playground, and improve the landscaping, in addition to distributing fire extinguishers to all families attending and providing important talks about fire safety.
Our partners in the community have joined together to help elevate this work project to a Community Neighborhood Block Party Event, during which all the Sherrelwood Elementary families and surrounding neighborhood could attend and enjoy the festivities.
This Block Party Event included food, education, interactive & field games for children, face painting and a visit from our local Firefighters! A range of other activities and events designed to teach health and safety were included in the festivities, including a bicycle and helmet giveaway and demonstrations from the Adams County Sheriff Department on evacuation safety (and they're bringing a bomb robot too!). The Buffalo Soldiers mounted unit history talk and demonstration and sign-up information for the Imagination Library, providing a free book for children 0-5 every month, also joined in on the event.
Thank you, St. Anthony North Health Campus, for sponsoring this event! Your volunteers, joining with teachers and staff of Sherrelwood Elementary, painted multiple murals inside and outside the school, scrubbed and painted playground equipment, including hopscotch, four square, and tetherball courts, designed a buddy bench to help kids make friends, and improved the school grounds to be both beautiful and drought-resistant!
Thank you to our St. Anthony North Health Campus for your continued dedication to health and safety in our communities!
