Project DescriptionFor the third consecutive year the Philadelphia 76ers in new partnership with Honda
conducted a large-school revitalization project at Samuel Gompers School. Over 150 dedicated volunteers
showed up to Gompers School campus to enhance the physical appearance of the school in preparation for
the first day of school. Volunteers worked together to put together classroom kits, repainted the first-floor
hallway and gymnasium, organized the gym supplies closet, and painted ball field lines to maximize the vast
playground space. The school community greatly appreciated the outstanding work that the volunteers
conducted during their day of service. The school sends a special thank you to the Philadelphia 76ers and
Honda for the time and effort that they invested in helping create a beautiful atmosphere for the students and
administrators at the school.
