Last Saturday, Area Restroom Solutions team members (Bobbie, Melissa , Ashley & Gwyn) volunteered their time to help assist with the painting of the Bannon Street Family Shelter in Sacramento. It was such a rewarding experience and we look forward to being able to join up with them again this coming November. We got down and dirty with many other BIA member volunteers. It was such a visual treat to the eyes to be able to step back and see the exterior of the shelter be transformed in hours. The new exterior color is very bright and cheery. Much thanks to the event organizers for the nice lunch they provided for the volunteer crew. This event was also headed up by the local Volunteers of America Chapter.
