slides: Harvard Pilgrim Employees Transform Chandler Elementary School Gym

Saturday, November 03, 2012

 

Over 40 volunteers from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, including CEO Eric H. Schultz, teamed up to improve learning space at Worcester's Chandler Elementary School.

The project, done in collaboration with City Year Boston, involved painting the school's hallways with bright colors and inspiring murals, along with organizing the library and renovating a locker room and faculty space. It was the second year of service for the employees of Worcester's Harvard Pilgrim, which opened its office on Main Street in 2011.

"One of the ways Harvard Pilgrim supports the Worcester community is through this annual day of service,” said Eric H. Schultz, President and CEO of Harvard Pilgrim. “Our company has a strong tradition of hands-on community involvement and we all appreciate the opportunity to improve the learning spaces for Worcester’s students. By helping to brighten the Chandler Elementary School, we are giving them the environment they need to succeed.”

The day also included activities meant to inspire a healthy lifestyle in the students. Finz, the official mascot of the Worcester Sharks hockey team, helped get the kids and volunteers warmed up with some light exercise.

In addition, the Mobile Farmers Market (Veggie Mobile) stopped by the school to give the students and volunteers fresh apples. The Veggie Mobile is run by the Regional Environmental Council with support from the Harvard Pilgrim Foundation.

"We are very excited to welcome Harvard Pilgrim volunteers to Chandler Elementary School," said June Eressy, principal of Chandler Elementary School.  "It is gratifying to know that a local business is so willing to build relationships with our school.  These beautification projects will add so much to our school and the generosity of the volunteers demonstrates the importance of giving to our students."
