Day of Caring

3 Sep

Today is the United Way Day of Caring. The YWCA was lucky to have a group of volunteers from Lowe’s, Lowe’s Heroes, spend the day here. They worked in the Child Care Center playground and in the YWCA’s organic garden. They installed new benches and flowers in the playground to the specifications of our Preventing Obesity by Design grant. The volunteers also built raised beds for the garden. Lowe’s donated all of the supplies. The difference before and after is notable (see the photo gallery below). And even more volunteers from Lowe’s will be here tomorrow, working inside the building painting our After-School. It’s so wonderful! Many thanks to everyone involved!
