The Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency announces Volunteers of the Month for August
The Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency (URA) is pleased to announce the groups that participated in a recent community project as their Volunteers of the Month for August. These groups include Bayer Crop Science, Redi Services, and the Youth of the Rock Springs and Pilot Butte Wards.
These groups collaborated on a beautification project to improve the back alley behind the Broadway Theater in Historic Downtown Rock Springs. They cleaned up the landscaping, laid gravel, removed graffiti and trash, and painted the backside of the local businesses. These efforts amassed in a total of 120 man-hours for all the adults and youth involved. The project itself cost approximately $2500 – all of which was donated by Bayer Crop Science and Redi Services.
Craig Abernathy, the Redi Services Regional Director for Western Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and Idaho was quoted, “This project presented an opportunity to work with our business partner, Bayer Crop Science, to better the community we work and live in. Bayer Crop Science and Redi Services provided the needed support and resources to a local youth organization that desired a project to serve our area.”
He went on to say, “A project like this aligns with both of our organizations’ goals to give back to our community.”
