Countdown to the 8th Annual Workday: Gardena HS

There are only two days left before Sharefest’s 8th Annual Workday when thousands of volunteers will join together to complete hundreds of community-based service projects all around the South Bay and Harbor areas. The largest of these projects will take place at Gardena High School where King's Harbor Church has taken the lead in coordinating a campus-wide beautification project.  Saturday’s activities will include landscaping, irrigation, planting, maintenance, painting, murals, and general campus-wide cleanup.

Sharefest was honored to take on this project, which comes on the heels of the tragic shooting and wounding of two students at Gardena High School in January.  The efforts to restore a positive atmosphere of hope through a service project which produces tangible change embodies the heart of Sharefest’s mission. The goal here is to work alongside a community hit by tragedy to create meaningful change that benefits everyone.

This Workday project has a ton of support behind it, and Sharefest is proud to have so many partners including

Additionally, King's Harbor Church and the many volunteers from the school and the nearby community will be playing a huge role in making it possible to complete the work at Gardena High School this Saturday.  We are thankful for the generous support and commitment of our outstanding partners to this project and the community!

 We are thrilled for this opportunity to receive so much support from the community and mobilize our students to improve the campus and take pride in their school.

-- Rudy Mendoza, Gardena High School Principal
