Donation Drive for the Melillo Outdoor Learning Center

Posted on 03/12/2016

Melillo MS Family & Supporters,

Thank you very much for your support in the development of our Outdoor Learning Center.  The covered pavilion seating area has been completed.  Now, it’s time to focus on the garden area which will have several planter boxes for our science classes to grow plants and vegetables.  Students will have hands-on opportunities to explore various Science standards on a regular basis.

We are looking for donations that will help with the purchasing of supplies to make our garden come to life.   Our garden area would consist of rectangular and L-shaped planter boxes which have a variety of plants and vegetables growing and a tool shed to store gardening equipment.  A ground covering of rubber mulch will provide a comfortable and long-lasting surface for kids to walk and sit on as they tend to the garden.

Our estimated cost of the entire garden area is approximately $10,000.  Melillo MS has been known to raise money for great causes and we are in hopes of raising the money so we can begin this phase of our project.  Click here to open the official Outdoor Learning Center Donation Drive Flyer.

Any amount is appreciated.  Your name will be included with the growing list of donors.
