Gila River Hotels & Casinos’ employee team members took part in a community project at the Phoenix New World Education Center on Jan 15.
The troupe of GRH&C team members teamed-up with the online car dealer Carvana and the Arizona Coyotes Foundation, to build a playground set provided by the national non-profit organization “KaBOOM!”.
When all the work was completed, the school’s students gave the playground construction crew of over 200 volunteers a round of hi-fives in appreciation for constructing the new playground.
Crews of volunteers broke-up into small teams to work on painting murals on the school’s wall, laying down a mulch foundation and erecting the playset, just in time, before the skies started to trickle with rain drops.
The school’s principal Jesus Armenta said, “[We] want to thank KaBOOM! for getting the volunteers together to make this possible. I really thank the parents for getting everything organized, thanks to everyone for making this happen.”
To close out the morning of festivities, the students and volunteers gathered in front of the playground to belt one big howl along with the Arizona Coyotes mascot Howler.
