The desks and chairs used by the students in this community’s schools are over 20 years old and have long ago outlived their expected lifespan. The School Furniture Refurbishment Project will engage the New Opportunity Corps, a youth detention facility, to help repair the existing school furniture and will help the NOC students develop their skills.
