[ROCK HILL] – The SPCA complex in Rock Hill was spruced up on Monday as Sullivan Renaissance Interns spent the day volunteering to make improvements. The interns planted flowers, mulched gardens, painted the cat room and even touched up the sign, as they worked together to accomplish their planned activities. Interns also donated almost 300 pounds of pet food collected from their communities.
The day of service was part of the internship program, chosen and planned by the interns as a group.
The 2014 Sullivan Renaissance Interns include 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.
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 placed with a Sullivan Renaissance project to assist the volunteers with planting, watering and caring for the gardens.
