Serve Santa Maria kicks off their day of community charity work at Miller Elementary

SANTA MARIA, Calif. -- Serve Santa Maria begins their day of community charity work at Miller Elementary this Saturday.

“A lot of our seniors went to Miller Elementary, and so they wanted to come to their school and give back", said volunteer and Santa Maria AVID Teacher Shelley Springer.

They will begin by painting their famous colorful United States Map.

Volunteers will paint the entire playground and kids will be able to use it on Monday morning.

“I hope they love it. I mean, it is a lot of hard work, even though it's painting but the over-lining, the colors to make sure everything is right and perfect", said volunteer and Santa Maria High School student Joanna Vargas.

“It will be an amazing gift to the kids when they arrive on campus on Monday. They will be so excited. It is colorful and it is just a happier place", said Serve Santa Maria Leader Kim Chudoba.

Serve Santa Maria will have four other project locations.

They will also paint the Santa Maria YMCA playground with the U.S. map.

Volunteers will be going to La Maria Mobile Home Park to help the elderly with handy work.

The other two community project locations will be at the Santa Maria Bridge and Centennial Park.

“When we pulled together as a team, all segments of our community working for a common goal. It builds community. I think it inspires a sense of togetherness and partnership. And that's what service Santa Maria is all about", said Chudoba.

Serve Santa Maria has a couple of projects per year.
