The Day is a community-wide service project lead by the learners of New Tech High @ Coppell. Our purpose is to give back to and say “Thank You” to the wonderful community of Coppell. We as a school want to serve the Coppell community by recruiting a number of students from New Tech High @ Coppell to do small acts of service at local homes, schools, parks, and other locations in the community.

How we can help you.

We would love to carry out various jobs at your home or business. These services include, but are not limited to, raking leaves, washing windows, weeding flower beds, painting houses, planting trees and flowers, and other seasonal chores.

How do I apply?
