Local volunteers create large mural at Roosevelt Elementary School in West Palm Beach

Dozens of volunteers spend part of their Saturday painting a mural at a local elementary school.
 
In wake of the Sandy Hook shooting last year, the managers at 'Engineered Tax Services,' decided to do something positive each month to help.  
 
Today it was at Roosevelt Elementary school in West Palm Beach.
 
About 40 volunteers brought their paint brushes and paint, and created a mural on the outside of the school, to remind the students the importance of an education.
 
"The idea is to promote reading...Because we know reading is critical and reading is everything for children especially from communities like this," said 
 
The group plans on painting two more large murals in the fall after school starts.
