Coral Gables PALS Show Up & Paint The Town... Errr, ADT

By Sunrise Group on July 6, 2016

 Kicking off a busy summer of beautification projects for Sunrise, Coral Gables PALs started in Doral. On Wednesday, July 6th, the Adult Day Training Center received updates from the inside out (literally)! The Adult Day Training program (ADT) is a daily program that provides each individual with goals based on Person Centered Planning. The program provides both functional academic and vocational training skills. Moreover, individuals learn job skills that can prepare them for community based employment.

 Student volunteers started with interior painting on classrooms in the pre-vocational skills area; then spread out to clean the parking lot and finished the day by giving a fresh coat of paint to the asphalt and parking spaces alike.

Sunrise’s partnership with Coral Gables’s PAL is an extension of a system wide program coordinated by the Corporate Communications and Advancement Department, which works with community organizations in support of people with intellectual and physical challenges. Dedicated volunteers and community partners like PAL are always needed.

 To learn about opportunities in your area {Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee and Virginia}, please contact info@sunrisegroup.org or call (305) 273-3058.

Without the generous support and hands-on engagement of community partners like Coral Gables’ PALs, Sunrise would not be able to serve so many individuals and families across the East Coast. Our deepest appreciation to our PAL teen volunteers!!
