Lorenzo De Zavala Project Completed in West Dallas

The Lorenzo De Zavala Elementary project in West Dallas has been completed. The project has been a huge success due to the outstanding effort of more than 125 volunteers who put in over combined 650 hours of work!

The project management team have now relocated to Sidney Lanier Elementary and Dallas Environmental Science Academy for the next phases of community transformation.

Surgance and lionsraw USA are excited to have FC Dallas, an American professional soccer club based in the Dallas area, partner with us this Friday as we work together wrapping up the renovation project at Lanier Elementary. While we are completing the work at Lanier, we will have a team of volunteers working at Dallas Environmental Science Academy on a collage of environmentally focused art to cover a long hallway. Additionally, plans are in place to create a reading atrium outside the school to engage the students who are focused on environmental science applications. 

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer time, resources or services regarding these projects, please contact volunteer coordinator Kim Ladd.
