October, our school was packed with volunteers and VIPs! As a follow-up
project for last year’s gym renovation, we had over 100 volunteers in
the building including Celtics players Kris Humpries, Marshon Brooks,
Jeff Green, Brandon Bass and Kelly Olynyk!
Last spring, CityYear scoped out spots in the school that needed a
pick-me-up. They designed mural panels and provided all the supplies for
the volunteers to paint them. Optum Health Technologies had volunteers
from all over the state (and Connecticut).
In addition, the Celtics management, former player Dana Barros, team
cheerleaders and “Lucky” the mascot kicked off the day with an uplifting
assembly for the kids.
It was a great day and we got so much out of it!! Thank you to all involved.
