Echo Park school playground to get a free makeover

More than 1,000 volunteers from across Los Angeles are scheduled to descend on Rosemont Avenue School next month for a one-day clean up and makeover of its playground, parking lot and school garden. The clean up of the Echo Park elementary school organized by the nonprofit L.A. Works is one of several volunteer clean ups and programs connected to Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 17.  The volunteers at Rosemont are expected to help with “painting murals, touching up paint, constructing planter benches and rehabilitating a school garden,” according to an L.A. Works press release. Last June in Cypress Park,  more than 700 volunteers organized by L.A. Works painted a new mural at Aragon Elementary and also cleaned up graffiti on storefronts.

Persons interested in volunteering for the Rosemont clean up must first register online.
