BeautifulDay.Org Volunteers at Capitol and Selma Olinder Parks

Each March, Westgate Church organizes a day of service for their entire congregation, focused on improving San José neighborhoods. On March 23 and 24, 265 volunteers took shifts to improve Selma Olinder and Capitol parks. A total of 537 hours, valued at $30,000, were donated to perform improvements and refresh picnic areas, trails, playgrounds and walking bridges. Additionally, over 225 rose bushes were added to a new garden, along a new split rail fence built by the volunteers at Capitol Park. In addition to the fence and roses, a staff-designed pollinator garden converted a dirt area into a home for bees, butterflies, birds and other pollinators. The garden will serve as an educational area for children playing at the park. PRNS’ Volunteer Management Unit appreciates the volunteers’ time and is grateful to Westgate Church for selecting San José parks for their service project. For more information, please contact Justin Long, PRNS Deputy Director, at 408-793-5579.
