Volunteers Help Renovate Community Facility at Woodside Houses
days a week Dozens of volunteers from AECOM, a civil engineering company, and its Tishman Construction operation joined Rebuilding Together NYC to renovate Woodside Houses in Queens on Saturday.
The Woodside Houses are a public housing development managed by the Sunnyside Community Services non-profit organization.
Volunteers renovated the housing development’s community facility.
The space is used six days a week by hundreds of children, according to an AECOM press release.
Throughout the day, volunteers also painted and installed new flooring in the facility’s bathrooms, art room, exercise room, library and computer lab.
By renovating the space, volunteers hoped that they could improve the community center.
Organizers said the facility serves as a safe haven for children from kindergarten all the way through 12th grade.
