Picnic Table Build Day
Saturday, October 14
8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Lively Middle School
201 E. Mary St.
Austin, Texas

In 2022 the picnic tables fundraising and volunteering project was such a success, we are planning to do it again!

Outdoor time in schools is known to benefit students’ mental and physical health and wellbeing in multiple ways but not all schools have the resources to allow for outdoor time. Some facilities, especially Title 1 schools around the city do not have outdoor furniture to help facilitate class instruction or outdoor dining.

We, at USGBC Texas, are fundraising to be able to buy picnic table kits to serve multiple local schools. Once we raise sufficient funds, we will organize a volunteering day to put the tables together and distribute to the identified schools.

We are calling on our community and corporate partners to assist with this effort. Whether this is monetary or an in-kind volunteer donation, we would be ever so grateful to have your support. We plan to partner with local school campuses and build approximately 30 outdoor dining tables (estimated cost = $5,000). If we are able to raise more money, we would provide more tables and cater to more schools.

Picnic table build day will take place Saturday, October 14, fro8am to 1pm at Lively Middle School,  201 E Mary St.

Sign up to volunteer!
