Generation Charleston Shows "Y We Volunteer"

The Generation Charleston Community Outreach Team would like to thank the volunteers who took time on April 19 to show Charleston "Y We Volunteer."

The project was a huge success.

What Generation Charleston achieved:

The Sojourner's Cooking/Serving group organized the food pantry, which was a feat in and of itself, and prepared a wonderful lunch of chili dogs, slaw and beans.

The Sojourner's painting group scrubbed and painted the dining room walls, perfectly executing the maroon color scheme. The Charleston Gazette and WOWK-TV visited the group during the work. Thanks to Rob and Brad for the lovely "work shot" and to Rossi and Brad for fielding the reporters' questions.

The Child Enrichment Center group primed and painted a large room and a transformed a rarely used bathroom from drab to fab. The director could not stop talking about the bathroom and the great job.

The Past n' Present group sorted and hung 50 bags of clothes. The store manager raved about the effort.

The Shanklin Center group painted two rooms and even had a little time to do some landscaping. The only regret the Shanklin Center director had was that she didn't buy enough supplies to keep her team hard at work ... painting.

Each of the sites was very appreciative of the work.

The Community Outreach Team will soon start planning the 2nd Quarter Service Project. If you would like to be involved in the planning of the next project, please join us at the next Team meeting May 13 in the Clay Center's Conference Room East.
