Ss. Peter and Paul School will undergo extensive campus renovations thanks to a $150,000 donation from Phillips 66, an energy manufacturing and logistics company.
On May 2, the funding will be put into effect as part of the 2015 Sharefest Community Workday, an annual service day that enlists volunteers for community projects. Approximately 130 volunteers will come together to work on the school upgrades, which include fresh paint for the courtyard, campus landscaping and a new outdoor athletic area.
“These projects will help bring a renewed sense of pride to our campus for our students and teachers,” said principal Nancy Kuria. “We are grateful to Sharefest and Phillips 66 for their incredible efforts and generosity to make this possible!”
The elementary school, located in Wilmington, is one of 38 sites receiving volunteer-backed improvements during Sharefest Workday. Sharefest’s projects extend throughout the South Bay and Harbor area.
“Through this Sharefest project, we are working with the community to improve access to fitness and recreational opportunities,” said Janet Grothe, Phillips 66 public affairs manager. “We look forward to seeing our neighborhood children play at the new community field.”
