  • Project Community Care will be Saturday, August 24th from 9am to 12 pm. Project Community Care is an annual tradition and a wonderful opportunity to help beautify PPS school grounds in preparation for the first day of school (including the area around KBPS Radio). Volunteers assist with outdoor projects, such as weeding and spreading mulch. Tools and supplies vary by school. No volunteer registration is required and all ages are welcome.
