ARLINGTON, Va. – Washington Capitals forwards Chris Brown and Stanislav Galiev will participate in D.C. Public Schools’ (DCPS) annual Beautification Day at Dr. Charles R. Drew Elementary School in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Aug. 23 at 10:30 a.m.

Brown, Galiev and volunteers will work on several projects to prepare the school for the upcoming academic year. Projects include painting, cleaning, gardening and making signs to welcome the students back for the school year.

Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation supports the charitable efforts of the professional teams under its umbrella: the Washington Capitals, Mystics and Wizards. MSE is committed to the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and focuses on the following five pillars to maximize its impact and engagement with the community: youth basketball and hockey, education and scholarship, pediatric health and fitness, military and veterans' affairs and hunger and homelessness.
