[ROCK HILL] – The 2014 Sullivan Renaissance Interns will volunteer at the SPCA in Rock Hill for a day of service on August 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The SPCA is located at 104 Rock Hill Drive in Rock Hill.
Representatives of the news media are invited to interview participants throughout the day.
Interns will paint interior and exterior areas, as well as garden and spruce up the grounds. As part of this service activity, interns have placed collection boxes in their communities soliciting dog and cat food to donate to the SPCA.
The Sullivan Renaissance Youth Development and Internship Program is a partnership between Sullivan Renaissance and the Center for Workforce Development that provides paid work experiences for Sullivan County youth between the ages of 16-20. Each intern is hired to work with a Sullivan Renaissance project to assist the volunteers with planting, watering and caring for the gardens.
The day of service is an additional element of the internship program. As a group, the interns choose and plan a project and then fulfill the tasks together.
The 2014 Sullivan Renaissance Interns are: Joseph Aitken, Jennifer Avila, Hannah Bisland, Celina Castellano, Blake Costa, Collin Frost, Brittany Fuller, Taylor Goudreau, Jane Hyman, Matthew Kerendian, Madison McCormack, Jordan Mirch, Ronj Padu, Sabrena Smith, Djani Torres and Manuel Valentin.
