Some opted out of their day off Monday to observe Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday with a “day on” working at local schools.
Employees from Kaiser Permanente’s Napa-Solano Region and volunteers from Rebuilding Together Solano County joined students, parents and school staff to spruce up the campus at Dan O. Root Elementary School in Suisun City.
While they raked debris, planted shrubs, spread mulch, washed windows and steam-cleaned the faculty room, some wore a Rebuilding Together shirt, while others opted for a turquoise shirt displaying King’s portrait and a declaration to “Make it a day on. Not a day off.”
