On Friday dozens of neighborhood grade school students gathered at the Egleston YMCA to thank the many volunteers from United Way who renovated their youth center. Over a hundred volunteers spent the week of April 11-17 painting, sanding, building out walls, adding bookshelves and storage areas and installing a new floor to three rooms of the Egleston YMCA. It was funded with a grant from Depend, a brand of incontinence products from Kimberly-Clark. The labor force came from skilled workers of the Gilbane Building Company and United Way leadership families.
