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.
