We had the utmost pleasure to have a GTECH volunteer work day at ALEC. The volunteers were staff from AEO here in Pittsburgh! American Eagle also presented GTECH with a check to assist with expenses in building the ALEC Green Playce.
Several projects were scheduled for the day. Painting all wood surfaces, starting work on the birds nest space, and starting the slope for the slide. Groups also finished the other 3 mobile planters, and helped clear out much of the weeds and rocks on the slope. A few volunteers also created a "pizza garden", which is split into section to grow typical herbs used in pizza and pasta sauces.
A HUGE thank you to AEO Better World volunteers for coming to our site, GTECH Stategies for our Green Playce, and Pittsburgh Cares for helping arrange this work day! We are on our way towards a completed Green Playce!
