Nearly two dozen MPS Central Services staff, including Superintendent Dr. Gregory Thornton, rolled up their sleeves and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity this weekend. Projects included painting, priming and cleaning two houses on the city’s north side.
One group had the opportunity to work alongside the future homeowner of the house they were painting. With gumption and gratitude, this young lady is destined to go far and her new home will undoubtedly serve as a source of comfort and pride for years to come.
“Investing in our neighborhoods, right alongside the work we do in our schools, is helping to build a stronger and more resilient Milwaukee,” said Dr. Thornton.
