THE STORY:

We are presently organizing members of the community, and an acclaimed local artist to help paint a mural on an exterior wall of Samuel Gompers Elementary School's playground, a school bordering Saint Joseph's campus in the Overbrook neighborhood. The wall is two hundred and five feet long and thirteen feet high and has not been painted for several years. Our goal is to revitalize the playground for the students by adding bright colors and positive, encouraging images.

After two years of working with the Philadelphia School District, the resolution was passed last spring for the project to begin. During this long process, the students at Gomper's Elementary have remained at the center of the project, offering their creative ideas and enthusiasm throughout. With the help of the students and members of the community, as well as the hard work and dedication of Samuel Gomper's Principal Mr. DeLuca, we have overcome many obstacles that have stood in the way of painting the mural. However, funding for the mural has been our greatest obstacle yet. Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $1000 for the project so the fun can begin!
