As part of National Volunteer Month celebrations, about 100 AT&T employees completed a beautification project at Kelsey L. Pharr Elementary School in Miami. City Year, an education organization that helps students and schools succeed, coordinated the project for AT&T.
The AT&T volunteers spent their day at the NW 46th Street school:
• Painting more than 20 murals themed around inspirational quotes, school pride/school logos and school pillars for success; the murals — ranging in size from 2-by-3 feet to 80-by-8 feet — span the entire school campus;
• Painting the teacher’s lounge;
• Building benches, and
• Creating banners with motivational messaging for the cafeteria and teacher’s lounge
“AT&T employees are committed to serving their communities across the country,” said Joe York, president of AT&T Florida. “We are thrilled to partner with City Year’s Care Force team to help transform schools and neighborhoods into brighter, more vibrant spaces for all.”
The Miami AT&T Day of Service is just one of many marquee volunteer events with City Year’s Care Force team happening nationwide and engaging hundreds of AT&T employees.
“We are excited to partner with AT&T to engage employees in high-impact service days to create more welcoming environments for students in communities across the country,” said Michael Brown, City Year co-founder and CEO.
