WIXOM, Mich. (September 11, 2014) – In an effort to support educational charities in the Detroit area, RevSpring team members recently participated in the Color Run supporting Dollars for Scholars as well as the non-profit organization, Life Remodeled, which transformed a Detroit Public School.
The Life Remodeled Cody-Rouge 6-Day Project included revitalizing Cody High School, two nearby elementary schools and beautifying the surrounding neighborhoods in order to create safe and inspirational pathways for kids traveling to and from school.
In addition to RevSpring being a sponsor, Rich Turner, RevSpring’s vice president of sales and marketing, volunteers with Life Remodeled. “Having been involved with Life Remodeled for over a year now, we’ve seen the rewards of creating a safe and inspirational environment for children and families in the community,” said Turner. “Life Remodeled does an amazing job of bringing thousands of volunteers, donors and community members together to pull up a neighborhood that possesses both the need and hope for a better tomorrow. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute. Giving your time and talents is rewarding beyond belief and it makes us want to do it again.”
