March 15, 2017
Georgia United Credit Union is excited to announce the 4th annual School Crashers program. School Crashers is Georgia United’s largest community outreach program which offers local schools the opportunity to apply for campus makeover projects. Accredited public or private elementary, middle and high schools in Georgia are encouraged to apply for a School Crashers makeover that will be funded by Georgia United and involve school and community volunteers. Nominations will be accepted Wednesday, March 15 through Saturday, April 15, 2017.
Interested parties should complete the online nomination form located at gucu.org/schoolcrashers and should include a compelling story why your school deserves a makeover.  Applicants are encouraged to include one photo that illustrates the area selected for improvement. Makeover projects may include painting, landscaping, new furniture and installing new carpet. Requests for structural, plumbing or electrical enhancements will not be considered. The top winner will be announced on May 16, 2017.
Last year’s winning school was Oakcliff Elementary in Doraville. Oakcliff’s heartfelt entry from a current student was chosen from among hundreds of nominations from schools across the state. Five additional runner-up schools also received school improvement mini-makeovers in 2016.
Once the 2017 School Crashers winner has been chosen, there will be opportunities for community members, educators, parents and students to join Georgia United team members to volunteer for this School Crashers event which will take place in July. Stay tuned to gucu.org/schoolcrashers in the coming weeks for additional information.
