Sony Pictures Entertainment will join with the education-focused nonprofit City Year on a campus beautification project at El Rincon Elementary School on April 19 as part of the studio’s annual Sony Global Volunteer Day.
Under the theme “Someone Needs You,” this annual day of service demonstrates Sony’s commitment to its community and volunteerism. More than 24,000 Sony employees from 18 countries volunteer to participate in this program worldwide every year.
As part of the campus beautification project, the Culver City-based studio’s employees will work alongside City Year corps members on three murals and a painting to revitalize the school’s exterior. The murals will reflect the school’s new mascot as well as its commitment to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education. This day of service is part of a bigger project to revitalize El Rincon Elementary School by the Culver City School District.
A culturally diverse and active learning community, El Rincon Elementary School provides an environment that prepares students to develop necessary skills to be successful in tomorrow’s global community.
