As part of the National Neighborhood Promise program funded by the Republic Services Charitable Foundation, we are pleased to partner with Rebuilding Together Houston provide critical repairs to SHAPE Community Center in the Third Ward. SHAPE Community Center is focused on improving the quality of life for people of African descent (all people) through programs and activities, with emphasis on Unity, Self-Determination, Collective Work & Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity and Faith.
Republic Services volunteers participated in a day of service to revitalize the community gardens at SHAPE as well as the Alabama Gardens. Volunteers also participated in a community clean up and beautification efforts in the nearby area. In addition to garden revitalization, the National Neighborhood Promise grant also supported critical repairs including roof replacement and sewer line repairs to bring plumbing up to code.
