Home > Event > Sharefest, Asomugha Foundation, and Phillips 66 Unite to Renovate Wilmington Senior Center
02 August, 2015

This week, the Wilmington Senior Center will receive long-awaited improvements thanks to the collaboration of Torrance-based Sharefest Community Development; the Asomugha Foundation – ACTS program, and energy manufacturing and logistics company Phillips 66.

A generous $45,000 gift from Phillips 66 will fund the project, and nearly 75 students from Sharefest’s Summer Youth Development Academy (YDA) and Asomugha’s College Tour for Scholars (ACTS) program will complete the work during a youth service day.

During the service day, students will help beautify the center, from cleaning to assisting with new landscaping, with a goal of creating a welcoming and comfortable environment for community members.

The overall renovation plan for the Senior Center includes needed updates and improvements to both the interior and the exterior of the building, including a complete overhaul of the existing landscape. The ACTS students will help with the removal of plants, and other ground prep work to online valium. The work will be done under the guidance of a landscape professional and all tools as well as gloves and safety goggles will be provided

In addition to the landscaping, the students will participate in a mosaic project that they are creating at the center. These pieces will be incorporated into larger mosaics on oversized planters that will be installed in the Senior Center courtyard. The finished mosaics will be a wonderful representation of different communities coming together to create something beautiful.
