Join us as we give Joplin Elementary a much needed make over!

Joplin Elementary is located in Auburn Gresham in Chicago's south side, serving students PreK through 8th grade. 98% of students are African American and 95% of students come from low-income households. Because Joplin is part of the Chicago Public Schools system, it ,unfortunately, has suffered from the same budget issues as every other school. Dwindling student attendance, budget shortages and state politics have caused schools to make dramatic cuts. Since school beautification and repair is often the first items removed from their budgets, schools rely on volunteers to make their environments warm and inviting.

We'll beautify Joplin by painting, landscaping, installing murals, renovating the teacher lounge, and turning their overgrown courtyard into a teaching garden and we hope to see you there!

Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor for Platoon Leadership Summit, BAE Systems Inc and in-kind sponsor, Benjamin Moore for providing our paint for this project.
