T.E.A.M. SpringCM does Chicago Cares

On Saturday, about 25 SpringCM employees, spouses, and children participated in the 15th Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon.

We went to Cook Elementary School on the south side of Chicago. There was a total of about 150 people there when you include the other companies. The SpringCM group painted 7 classrooms. Along with the other companies, we painted 19 classrooms, the hallways on both floors, and a mural.

Susan and I have been working on painting the interior of our house for a couple of weekends, and we've only got the primer up. A large team certainly can accomplish a lot more than one or two people. Together Everyone Achieves More, that's what T.E.A.M. is all about!

After 5 hours, it was amazing to see how much brighter the school is. As we were leaving the principal commented that she can't wait to see the childrens' faces on Monday as they walk in for summer school and the school is a whole array of new bright colors. That would be fun.

And a big thanks to Quiana for organizing the SpringCM bunch!
