Cricket and Rebuilding Together Connect and Revitalize 5 Communities

In August, residents of Baltimore, Detroit, Miami, Minneapolis and Seattle voted for their favorite community projects to receive a donation from Cricket Cares to revitalize local neighborhoods deserving much needed TLC.

 

In the months following the close of the competition, employee and volunteer teams from Cricket and Rebuilding Together worked side by side to repair and improve important community structures in each city.

 

Baltimore, Maryland

Replacing closet doors, and installing new closet shelves, room dividers and a projector with retractable screen, are just some of the repairs Cricket Cares made to the GEDCO Cares facility. The aid makes it possible for the community organization to continue to help those in the area facing financial hardship.

 

Detroit, Michigan

So its members could focus on skill building, employment readiness and personal goal setting, the Cares team much needed repairs and improvements to the Cass Community Social Services facility. They cleaned up and repainted the interior and exterior of the building, repaired broken brick, installed a new bench, and restored and stained the existing deck and wooden entrance.

Miami, Florida

Touching Miami with Love has inspired, educated and empowered children, youth and adults since 1995 and need some updating to help its volunteers continue to help others. Cricket Cares helped painting the interior and exterior of the facility, installing new picnic tables and repairing the roof. The results allows the organization to better serve its clients in a healthier, safer and more efficient workspace.

Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota

At the Mt. Airy Boys & Girls Club facility, the team built new walls inside the facility, installed sound insulation in walls and above ceiling tile, added new electrical and grid fixtures, and rerouted HVAC supply and exhaust. Now they can focus on enabling young people reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.

 

Seattle, Washington

The community garden and dog park adjacent to the Calvary Baptist Church were greatly beautified and improved by the Cares team. They repaired the green house roof and added garden lighting for safety. They also created a community mural, added new signage and distributed “Safe at Home” kits.

 

We thank everyone who made these awesome Cricket Cares events successful, including those who voted for their favorite projects!
