PG&E Playground Paint at Shore Acres Elementary

  1. Updates

Saying goodbye to the summer can be hard to do. To ease the transition – Playworks teamed up with PG&E, Shore Acres Elementary and Bay Point. With Utilizing dozens of gallons of paint, rollers, brushes and over 50 participants- the group of volunteers transformed a drab and colorless playground into a bright and inviting place for kids to enjoy.

When the students return to recess, they’ll be delighted to see freshly renovated 4-square courts, tetherball, soccer, wall ball and much more.

Thanks to all who made this possible, especially our sponsor, PG&E! And thanks to Mercury News for covering the event. Please check out the the article on their PG&E’s website.
