Over 100 volunteers from Astellas Pharma brought “magic” to the halls of The Cove School. Through a partnership with local non-profit Chicago Cares, and as a part of their “Changing Tomorrow Day,” Astellas volunteers spent the day beautifying and enhancing the grounds of The Cove School.
The volunteers painted soccer and football lines on an athletic field recently donated with a grant from the Astellas USA Foundation. Volunteers also created an outdoor classroom, and painted interactive games on the blacktop. New benches were built in the front of the building as a place for students to sit as they wait for rides home from school. Astellas volunteers also created mosaic stepping stones to be placed in the Cove Grove and mosaic art for the lunchroom.
