Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) and North Lake College volunteers completed a beautification project Jan. 10 at the Senter East Building, 228 Chamberlain St.
Six volunteers painted the building that will used for a variety of recreational activities throughout the year. The City of Irving’s Parks and Recreation Department provided the necessary supplies and guidance for the project.
“This event shows students the importance of helping the community,” said KIB board member Candace Eldridge. “Our volunteer partnerships with North Lake College are always a great experience.”
The project was completed with a total of 22 service hours. The volunteer group consisted of two current students, one former student who now studies at Texas Women’s University and longtime KIB volunteer Sammy Romero.
