Involvement at former McNair Elementary demonstrates business commitment to MPS success
Dozens of Milwaukee businesspeople will support the opening of Rufus King International School – Middle Years Campus by volunteering their time on a summer Saturday.
The service project will help beautify the grounds and make the interior more welcoming for new students.
The event is coordinated by the Greater Milwaukee Business Volunteer Council (BVC), a longstanding group organized by the Volunteer Center of Greater Milwaukee.
The BVC is a coalition of more than 40 companies dedicated to advancing strategic volunteerism as a tool to address business goals, community needs and employee interests.
The Rufus King – Middle Years Campus at the former McNair Elementary School building will open on August 18 with more than 200 students.
It is affiliated with Rufus King International School – High School Campus, which is consistently the top-rated public high school in Wisconsin. The volunteer event is the first effort of a three-year commitment by the BVC to help various Milwaukee Public Schools by providing hands-on assistance, school supply drives and targeted business skill-based volunteer opportunities.
