Volunteers sought for East Providence Rec Center project
EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence Recreation Center, located at 100 Bullocks Point Ave in Riverside, provides programs and opportunities for many people in the community, especially for children and teens. Budget cuts have resulted in fewer opportunities for youth in East Providence to engage in extracurricular activities. This makes the services of the Rec Center even more important for the well being of the younger generation.
The Rec Center facilities, however, are in need of repair and improvement. BridgePointe Christian Church (www.BridgePointeChristian.com) sees this as an opportunity to bring people together for the benefit of our community. BridgePointe will be hosting and sponsoring a work day at the Rec Center on Saturday, March 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Projects will include painting, cleaning, and minor repairs throughout the facility. The East Providence Seekonk Rotary will be partnering with this event to provide supplies and promote the event throughout the community.
Everyone from the community is invited to participate in the Rec Center Work Day for all or part of the day. Lunch will be provided. There will be projects for people of all strength, size, and skill level. Let’s work together to bring hope!
