Volunteers Help Spruce Up Quincy Senior Residences

Last month, a group of volunteers from Deutsche Bank USA and LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation) NYC worked to spruce up Quincy Senior Residences, Bridge Street’s 93-unit building for low-income senior citizens. With logistical support from Rebuilding Together NYC, over the course of two days the enthusiastic volunteers painted and installed new wood flooring in the library, power-washed and painted the courtyard stones, installed new window planters, and landscaped the garden area.

The seniors who live in Quincy Senior Residences and the board and staff of Bridge Street Development Corporation thank LISC for spearheading the project and providing volunteers; Deutsche Bank for providing funding and volunteers; and Rebuilding Together NYC for ensuring that the project went smoothly. And, of course, a huge thank you to the volunteers who got their hands dirty and made the project a great success!
