Davis Students to Paint Over Graffit

Members of the Davis High School Skills USA Chapter will hit the streets of Yakima
Saturday  to help the City deal with graffiti problems. They will be joined by other Davis High School students as part of a community service project to clean up graffiti.
The City of Yakima’s Office of Neighborhood Development Services is donating the paint and supplies that students will be using. Between 20 to 30 students are expected to participate in the event that will run from noon to 4:00 pm at various locations throughout the City.
“This is a great way to get kids involved in the community,” says Davis student Alejandro
Gonzalez who is also state parliamentarian for Skills USA, which is part of a national
partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. There are 3000 Skills USA members in Washington State and more than 300,000 across the nation.
Results from both the 2012 and 2013 Yakima Citizen Surveys clearly revealed an expectation that the City of Yakima should be more proactively involved in improving the overall appearance of the community. To improve the visual quality of the City, the proposed 2014 City Budget proposes a second Graffiti Abatement Coordinator to assist, organize, and direct the cleanup of graffiti sites soon after they are reported in order to diminish the visual blight graffiti creates in the community.
