80 volunteers aim for a community beautification Day of service
More than 80 volunteers armed with paint brushes, rollers and Roller Handles, blue tapes, trays and some paint to beautify the Empire Board of Realtists building on Saturday. The Volunteers spent the first half of the day painting the exterior and interior of the building.
These volunteers from several organizations, including the United Way of Greater Atlanta and their corporate partners, Young Professional Leaders/LINC, Youth United Atlanta, Suntrust Bank, United Way Staff Members, Global Paint for Charity’s volunteers, sacrificed a Saturday morning to help make the building a brighter place.
For many young professional Leaders, it was a good opportunity to learn new skills, team work and making a difference, others enjoyed some networking time and watching the transformation of the building from an old beige to a perfect gray color.
“This is the first time I painted anything, I have painted my nails, that’s it!! I really enjoy this event. I get to spend time with my friends and new people while giving back to my community” said one of the young leaders, Linda.
It’s the way of educating a more beautiful and better community and showing these youth and future leaders in our community the importance of caring for their neighborhood and the less fortunate.
“In their generation and the next generation, I hope they keep painting and changing lives in the community” said a volunteer.
Thank you to the United Way of Greater Atlanta team and Staff Members donating all the supplies, the entire Atlanta Elite Construction team for providing sprayer machines and ladders, Tool Bank of Atlanta, Global Paint for Charity for donating 120 gallons of paint and conducting the event, Sherwin Williams, and Sharon Henry, 2016 President Of The Empire Board Of Realtists for providing breakfast, soft drinks, water to the volunteers, it was HOT and SUNNY on Saturday, and the drinks came very handy.
