Advisory: Wake Forest desk-painting event rescheduled for April 24
April 19, 2007
Due to rainy weather, Wake Forest University’s fourth annual desk-painting event has been rescheduled for 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. April 24 on Manchester Plaza. The event was originally scheduled to take place this afternoon.
The service project called D.E.S.K or Discovering Education through Student Knowledge is an outdoor event in which at-risk students from Old Town Elementary School are partnered with teams of Wake Forest students to paint a colorful, custom-decorated desk for that child.
The desk, along with a chair and school supplies, are delivered to the students’ homes so they have better spaces at home to do schoolwork.
The event also includes music, games, prizes and a giant inflatable slide.
