A little bit of AB&I “elbow grease” goes a long way at local elementary school!
August 18, 2015
In 2015, AB&I adopted Oakland, California elementary school Aspire College Academy and on August 14, they started some much needed renovations to the playground. They also donated books for the children and supplies for the teachers. The playground is located in the back of the school and was pretty much abandoned because of concerns for the children’s safety. The adjacent houses and playground are separated only by a chain-link fence and the benches were in need of repair. There were also lots of dry patches and debris from overgrown weeds and branches.
The AB&I team went in and repaired the benches, covered the chain-link fence with a tarp, cleared away all the weeds and overgrown branches, painted the flower boxes and planted new flowers and tomato plants.
Jessica Newburn, Principal at Aspire College Academy, said, “Wow! The back playground at ACA looks fantastic. I really can’t thank you enough. The benches are safe and the screens on the fence look amazing. Thank you again to your entire team!!”
AB&I was represented by the following team members on this project: Alfredo Costa, Amalia Beltran, TJ Pinkston, Omar Flores, Isaac Beltran, Gilberto Bolaños, Oscar Lopez, JoLynn Lopez (Oscar’s wife), Savuth Chhoun, Isaac Beltran Jr., Nick Darling, Chelsea Gutierrez and Zeydi Gutierrez.
Great job team AB&I!
