D.E.S.K. event postponed again
April 24, 2007
Due to the chance of thunderstorms, Wake Forest University’s fourth annual desk-painting event rescheduled for today has been postponed. The event will be held from 4 – 6 p.m. May 1.
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.
