The Bay High basketball team scored big for the community cancer-support organization Village Project last week by volunteering to paint the offices of the Village Project.
Michael Murray, a Village Project Vice President and owner of Textbook Painting, credits the team and player Jack Jelen for taking the lead on the effort. “It was a great job by the Bay Boys Basketball team to make this happen and I was happy to help organize and supervise it,” said Murray. “I thought it would go well, but they exceeded my expectations. Everyone had a great attitude and worked hard to get the painting done. Big thanks from The Village Project! Bay Village, you should be proud to have these guys represent the community!”
Textbook Painting is located in Lakewood. They paint the exterior of homes, decks, fences, etc during the summer. Most of the people that work for them are full-time students. They also do interior painting during the winter.
Their mission is to help homeowners take pride in the exterior of their home as well as their community and to help young men and women make a positive and lasting impact in their community by providing them the experiences to grow personally and professionally.
Barb Harrell is the director of the Village Project.
