DATE OF SERVICE PROJECT:  October 17, 2017


TIME OF SERVICE PROJECT: 12:00pm – 3:00pm


LOCATION OF SERVICE PROJECT: Vare Recreation Center, 2600 Morris Street, Philadelphia, PA 19145

 

SERVICE-SUPPORTED OUTCOMES:

Project DescriptionThe Vare Recreation Center is a Philadelphia Parks & Recreation facility in the Grays
Ferry neighborhood of South Philadelphia. There is a playground, as well as basketball courts, a ballfield, and a
swimming pool on the recreation center’s property. But, some of the playground equipment needed a paint
touch up after so many years of being used by the neighborhood. Volunteers from Hilton Garden Inn helped
the Vare Recreation Center spruce up its playground by touching up the paint on the equipment, and also
cleaned up the playground and ballfield areas.
