Schneider Electric volunteers joined the DelSesto Middle School team at the Wanskuck Boys and Girls Club for a Day of Action last Friday, May 15th. More than 35 volunteers and 15 City Year AmeriCorps members and staff came together to beautify and rejuvinate the Club, which serves many of the same students as City Year Providence mentors in Providence schools.
In only one day, the team was able to apply a fresh coat of paint to storage closets, a kitchen, a large play area and an entire gymnasium. They also built several storage carts and cubbies to better organize the Club's supplies. Additionally, they were able to create a pathway to a stream behind the building. Complete with benches, the children can use this area to explore the nature that's in their backyard on the warm summer days to come.
Thank you so much to Schneider Electric and Wanskuck Boys and Girls Club for their support of our students and our community!
