As part of the national Make a Difference Day festivities on Saturday, October 22nd, CVC teamed with Rebuilding Together Long Beach and brought to campus approximately 40 volunteers who spent the day painting the entire exterior of our South Administration building, which houses the VA Community Based Outreach Clinic (CBOC) and the administrative offices of US Vets. In addition, volunteers painted the interior offices and training room of the building occupied by another of our service providers, Los Angeles Habitation House. The day started out at 7 AM, in a dense fog but the sun soon burned through and it was a gorgeous and bright sunny day with temperature in the mid 70’s. Rebuilding Together Long Beach arranged for all the painting supplies and equipment, water and snacks, and a tasty and filling Mexican buffet lunch! Volunteers, which included some CVC residents, had an opportunity to learn more about CVC and its partners and interacted with residents and staff. CVC thanks Rebuilding Together Long Beach and the many volunteers who contributed their time and energy on Saturday to make these much needed improvements to the CVC campus.
