Payless Shoe Source volunteers do early spring cleaning at Community Recovery Resources


On Wednesday, February 6th, 26 volunteers from Payless Shoe Source ambitiously completed multiple projects at the South Placer Residential Treatment Facility of Community Recovery Resources. Following a tour of the facility and overview of the services provided, the group accomplished painting the interior of the building, which included nineteen bedrooms, four offices, two group rooms and the hallway.In addition, the group cleaned out the basement of the facility, which had been used for storage for several years. And by “cleaned out,” we mean completely filling a huge dumpster that was donated for the day in addition to organizing what was left. The can-do attitude of each and every member of the volunteer team, lead by the hardest working volunteer lead, Mark, made for laughter all day, some practical jokes and some excellent team building!
