Peoples Gas volunteers brush up on decorating skills for south side Mock Center

CHICAGO - Peoples Gas and Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago brought smiles to the faces of clients who stopped by to watch a transformation take place at the Envision Mock Center on south Vincennes Avenue.

The adult day care facility was receiving a facelift, courtesy of the Peoples Gas 16th Annual Commitment to Community Day. More than 140 volunteers including Peoples Gas employees, their families and friends and Chicago Public School students who earned community service learning hours, spent the day brightening walls with a fresh coat of paint, repairing and installing new cabinets, countertops, sinks and doors to update the facility. Outdoors, volunteers planted bushes and sprays of multi-colored flowers to welcome the center's 92 clients as they enter the building.

The Envision Mock Center located at 8550 S. Vincennes Avenue in the Auburn- Gresham community is one of several sites of Envision Unlimited, an organization that has served people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across all ages, abilities and backgrounds, for nearly 50 years. Throughout the morning, volunteers worked at several activity stations putting together poster-sized sheets that help to stimulate the minds and refine the skills of the clientele that the Center serves.

Peoples Gas says Commitment to Community Day, one of the company's largest volunteer initiatives, is an opportunity for employees to give back to the community. "It's all about making a difference and supporting the communities in which we work and live," said Will Evans, Jr., president of Peoples Gas.

Commitment to Community Day is in partnership with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago, a leading volunteer organization that preserves and revitalizes low-income houses and communities. Employees from other local businesses including Rabine Paving, First Choice Landscaping, Meade Electric and C.J. Erickson Plumbing also donated supplies and time to the complete the project.
