Project Description: Dunbar Elementary nurtures the creative, intellectual, physical and social growth of each student in a supportive environment; imparting life-long skills to prepare students for an ever-changing world. These efforts face unprecedented challenges in the aftermath of California’s second most destructive wildfire that tore through the school. Today, Dunbar Elementary and the Glen Ellen community continue to rebuild and recover.


On July 12, 2019, volunteers will help Dunbar Elementary rebuild their outdoor structures and garden. The garden is used to teach elementary students about healthy eating, plant biology and care for the world around them. Volunteers will build garden beds and raised structures – put your construction skills to work with this project and rebuild the Glen Ellen community!


Afterwards the group will celebrate giving back at Lagunitas Brewery. The event is FREE and friends and family of perspective members are welcome to join. All travel, food, drinks and supplies are included. This event will fulfill your Belden membership philanthropy requirement.


Agency Description: Dunbar Elementary enables every student to reach their highest potential by establishing a curriculum that meets or exceeds government standards for education; providing extracurricular programs that develop children’s mental, physical and social skills; and partnering with parents and the community to create an environment geared to the success of our students.
