Honeywell, Oil Heat Cares Volunteer at YMCA Camp

Honeywell and Rebuilding Together Providence marshalled an all-day revitalization project at the YMCA Shepard Reservation Day Camp for underprivileged children.

Honeywell donated more than $7,500 in materials, and more than 50 Honeywell employees and volunteers from Oil Heat Cares and EDOS Manufacturers' Reps, Inc. helped with the project.

"The YMCA of Greater Providence is very grateful for the employees of Honeywell, Oil Heat Cares and EDOS for their time and energy spent out at our Camp Shepard Facility," says Paula Jacobson, Executive Director of the East Side/Mt. Hope YMCA.

Renovations included repairing and painting building exteriors, building new picnic tables, clearing away debris, and general trail maintenance. The team also planted new flowers on the grounds.

More than 4,500 Honeywell volunteers have revitalized more than 170 homes and community centers across the U.S. since September 2003. Those repairs have an estimated market value of $6 million.
