Achieve Gala 2020 Transformed

Volunteer to physically rebuild our community together, while following safety and social distancing guidelines.

Join us

After DPS Foundation’s Achieve Gala 2020 was canceled due to COVID-19, we decided to evolve and create a unique chance to gather together in support of our students. This year we will take this event to the community!

We invite you to join us on the morning of August 7 for an outdoor community rebuilding event. Volunteers will support projects that elevate the school’s grounds so that students are proud of their building and know they have community support behind them. There will be a variety of outdoor projects.


All clean-ups will take place on August 7. Please arrive at your site by 8 a.m. Work should finish up by 11 a.m. Please see the available sites below.

  • Please do not shake hands, high-five, or make physical contact with any volunteers or staff.
  • Volunteers will have temperatures taken upon arrival at the site.
  • If you are feeling under the weather in any way (Allergy attack? Cough? Runny nose? Just not 100%?), please do not attend the event as we want to keep everyone safe, happy and healthy.
