Join us for a morning of community engagement and volunteerism. Bring the Rollins College Mission into action. We ask that participants meet at 8:45 a.m. in front of the Cornell Fine Arts Museum. Transportation will be provided and we will depart campus by 9 a.m. and arrive back by 11:30 a.m. We will be partnering with Killarney Elementary School. Killarney Elementary is an elementary school located in Winter Park. The faculty and staff of Killarney joyfully serve 450 students in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grade from diverse backgrounds. Killarney Elementary is a Title I school with 100% of students receiving free breakfast and lunch each day. Approximately, 100 students are classified as homeless with many of these homeless families living in local, extended stay hotels. Our partnership with Killarney has grown significantly over the last year, and we invite you to participate in supporting a few of their needs, including: 1) Painting their clinic, so that it provides a warm and friendly environment for children; 2) Creating kid-friendly mural; 3)  Overhauling the classroom libraries to appropriately categorize books for each child. A water bottle is recommended.
