On Friday, Nick Rodriguez, Operations Manager for the Midland location of W. W. Grainger Inc., presented a check to the YMCA of Big Spring and Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club for $5,000 each. The money came from the Grainger Community Grant Program.
The money for the YMCA of Big Spring will be used to remodel their boys’ and girls’ restrooms, which also serves as locker rooms and shower areas for the students who use the facilities. Over time the steam has rusted and warped the lockers and has caused the paint in the shower areas to peel. The renovations will bring in new paint and lockers that will hold up better in a moist environment. This will be the last step in their project to remodel the facility.
The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club will use their $5,000 to help fund the purchase of outdoor playground equipment that will be placed on the lot located next to the Salvation Army office and the Salvation Army Bosy and Girls Club.
