Why Love Our Schools?

Love Our Schools Day is an opportunity for community members to connect with their local school – to roll up their sleeves and plant a garden, or paint a classroom.

How Can We Help?

By showing up and asking this question, it provides the opportunity to build friendship and trust as we work toward common goals.

Love Our Schools Day has been celebrated across Arizona for the last five years. Each year this event has grown and schools have received tremendous amounts of support from their communities as volunteers paint, clean, garden, prepare crafts, or create care packages for teachers!

Year Volunteers Schools Districts
2017 18000 387 37
2016 10000 265 30

Doing this alone is impossible; it takes all of us working together to make a difference.
