Serving East Middle School
Over 80 volunteers from UPMC Hamot and Hamot Health Foundation’s Board of Corporators teamed up with GE Transportation and United Way of Erie County to revitalize East Middle School on July 18.
Together, over 400 volunteers repainted hallways and bathrooms, replaced lights and ceiling tiles, and cleaned up the exterior landscaping in preparation for the first day of school next month.
Scherry Prater, principal at East Middle School, told volunteers that a brighter and cleaner school building creates a drastically different learning environment and gives students a better chance at academic success.
Hamot Health Foundation is the United Way’s Community Schools corporate partner for East Middle School, so we were so glad that GE Transportation invited us to join them on their fifth annual Community Service Day.
All of the preparation and follow-up work was completed by teams from GE Transportation, and we can’t thank them enough for their leadership, generosity, and hard work that has greatly beautified East!
