Employees from the United Parcel Service (UPS) Red River District partnered with Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) to add a fresh coat of paint inside the Senter Park Recreation Center, 901 S. Senter Road.
The group of nine volunteers spent a total of 31.5 service hours painting columns, a wall in the common room of the center, the back stairwell and the front entry near the elevator. The Parks and Recreation Department supplied the paint and provided technical guidance during the project.
“The UPS volunteers accomplished more painting than originally anticipated, and told us they’re excited about coming back to plant trees in the park,” said KIB President Scott Wilson. “The Senter Park Recreation Center looks beautiful after the recent renovation, and this group added the finishing touches to the building.”
