Munore Starts Spring Service Projects off with Passion!

Thursday morning as the rain clouds parted, a DPS school bus carrying 30 Munroe Elementary school students (ages 8-11) and two teachers arrived in City Park in Downtown Denver to volunteer with the Passion for Parks restoration project.

The students lent their assistance in planting a variety of plants throughout the East end of the Park and learned about the importance of keeping local Parks free of liter and vandalism.

During the spring season SCORES teams will conduct a variety of service learning projects in their communities.

As Denver Parks and Rec employees worked with Munroe students in City Park, over 500 volunteer Starbucks employees and customers spread throughout Denver working on similar restoration projects.

Starbucks and Denver Parks and Rec have been working together since 2007 to continue the Passions for Parks project. This year Starbucks also took the opportunity to present America SCORES Denver with a $30,000 grant.
