The Junior League of Roanoke Valley (JLRV) picked up paint brushes and drills to renovate an unused room for the Greenvale School last week. The updated classroom will become a computer and tutoring lab for students and families to improve their computer skills for academic and professional ventures.
Greenvale School is a Roanoke organization that provides exceptional child care services for children whose parents are working, participating in job training or enrolled in educational programs. The School takes a community approach by nourishing the growth and development of each child while supporting parents’ endeavors to build a prosperous future for their families.
“It has been many years since any volunteer group has offered to take on a project of this magnitude. As such, we were just thrilled that this year’s JLRV Provisional Class [helped] us clean up and brighten up the old office for a whole new purpose,” said Jenny Lee, Greenvale School’s director of Development. Lee added that they are “really excited about opening up this resource to our families and to the community!”
