Volunteers Beautify Courtyard Areas
The residents and staff at the Kane Regional Center in McKeesport welcomed nine volunteers from United States Steel Corporation’s McKeesport Tubular Operations on a hot and humid Saturday in August. The outreach event was just one aspect of United States Steel’s commitment to being good corporate citizens.
“Volunteering is a meaningful way to help brighten the lives of the residents at McKeesport Kane,” said Sean Wilder, plant manager. “We are pleased to give back to the community and aid the center’s staff with this truly worthwhile project.”
The team, which included several employees and their family members as well as friends of the plant, spent the day painting benches, pulling weeds and trimming bushes to help give a facelift to Kane’s courtyard area. It was difficult work in the summer sun but the workers were able accomplish even more than they expected.
“The courtyard area is a place of relaxation and reflection for our residents,” said Charlene Yoder, Administrator at Kane McKeesport. “We truly appreciate the volunteers’ hard work and kindness. They are making a difference in many ways.”
