Employee volunteers from the Irving Whole Foods Market joined Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) for a beautification project Feb. 20. Joined by a student from the North Lake College Service Learning program, the group painted the hallway and kitchen of the Senter East Community Building, giving sixteen hours of service in the effort.
KIB held its first volunteer project at the Senter East Community Building in fall 2019. Whole Foods is the fourth group to assist with painting a section of the building. The City of Irving Parks and Recreation Department provided painting supplies and technical guidance for the project.
“KIB appreciates the different groups who have helped with this ongoing project,” said KIB board member Margie Stipes. “This facility is used by many groups throughout the year, and the coat of paint has given it a fresh new look. KIB hopes to work with Whole Foods on more activities like this in the future. The organization is happy to have Whole Foods in Irving, and grateful for their community involvement.”
