Volunteers, mostly children, completed the project in one day. The project was in collaboration with Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership and included a litter pickup and painting of the playground equipment. Sherwin Williams in Warren donated paint supplies. Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership program assistant Christina Anderson coordinated the project.
