We spent our morning beautifying the Lawncrest Rec Center in the great Northeast section of the City with our friends from PhillyRising and the Travis Manion Foundation – planting, painting, cleaning and having fun with over 100 volunteers (who are now friends of course!). We repainted the front hallway of the Rec Center and the benches outside, planted new flowers and two dogwoods courtesy of our friends at Tree Philly, and laid stones around two memorial plaques that are a focal point for the Center.
None of this would have been possible without a generous paint donation from our friends at The Dow Chemical Company. We also had some awesome Dow volunteers helping out today – so our many, many thanks to Dow for all they do for Philadelphia!
Check out our pictures from the day here. And make sure to spot Philadelphia Managing Director Rich Negrin, who we were so thrilled to have come out and help Keep Lawncrest Beautiful!
