Volunteers give Eisenhower Academy a Fresh New Look
NEW ORLEANS, LA — Volunteers with Sherwin-Williams and Playworks Louisiana are rolling up their sleeves to revitalize Algiers Charter’s Eisenhower Academy.
In addition to donating painting materials and more than 50 gallons of paint, Sherwin-Williams volunteers spent the day repainting parts of the charter school’s playground and facilities. Everything from basketball courts, bathroom walls, to hallway posts got a fresh new look.
“We’re so grateful for these groups’ generosity and time,” says Rene Carter-Lewis, Algiers Charter CEO. “Not only does this project instill school pride in our students, it teaches them the importance of teamwork and giving back.”
The school was built in 1971, and regular upkeep and maintenance is needed every year to keep the building in good condition. The volunteers efforts go a long way in making that happen.
