Pelham, New York (PRWEB) March 3, 2010
The provisional class of the Junior League of Pelham (JLP) recently made over the reception area of the Family Services of Westchester (FSW) office in Mt. Vernon, New York, in partnership with Pelham-based A.G. Williams Painting Company, which donated all paint services and supplies. The family-owned residential and commercial painting firm provided the supplies to support the facelift, the provisional class project and an essential part of JLP volunteer training for incoming members.
Two A.G. Williams employees help paint the 250 square foot room, and donated paint, drop cloths and brushes. The reception area was painted a soft blue tone and decorated with works of art created by students from Nelson Mandela High School in Mount Vernon. A grand re-opening and unveiling of the new space took place February 4 at the site, attended by more than 30 people, including Virginia Hartmere, President of the JLP.
The upgrade of the reception area will help FSW better serve its clients with evaluation, treatment, education and counseling for families, couples and individuals. The warm, uplifting atmosphere are will positively impact employee morale. In addition to the new paint job, the JLP makeover included steam-cleaning the carpets as well as coordinating the donation of chairs, plants and magazine subscriptions. The class also created a children's corner filled with both new and gently used toys, books and puzzles. Artwork by Darius Cousart, Christopher Muhammad-Cooper, Jeffrey Maitre and Meisha Nelson, students at Nelson Mandela High School including black and white photos, a felt design and poems, adorns the wall of the children's corner.
"A new paint job works wonders to create a positive and happy environment," says Paul Viggiano, Director of Business Development and Marketing of A.G. Williams. "It was our pleasure to work together with the Junior League of Pelham to create a more welcoming Family Services of Westchester office."
