LAMC Volunteers Give Local School a Makeover
Kaiser Permanente Volunteers partnered with L.A. Works to create a motivational mural for Grant Elementary
Students at Grant Elementary school in Hollywood can enjoy more privacy and a new motivational mural, thanks to the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center (LAMC). Employees and physicians partnered with L.A. Works, a volunteer-coordination agency, for Big Sunday Weekend in May.
More than 40 volunteers painted a mural and weave into a fence to protect the privacy of the students when they are out for recess. Big Sunday Weekend is the largest regional community service event in the nation. Tens of thousands of volunteers of all ages, races, religions, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds from all over California lend their time and talents to those organizations, schools and individuals in need.
The event reflects LAMC’s legacy of service, and offers employees and physicians an opportunity to deepen community partnership efforts.
"We are committed to improving the health and lives of our patients and the communities we serve," said Mark Costa, Executive Director, Los Angeles Medical Center. "Working together and supporting each other keeps us thriving."
