Envirolution was excited to host a group of 23 high school boys from around the Reno area last month. The young men from the Boys Team Charity group assisted with multiple material preparation tasks for programs like Career Quest, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, and Project ReCharge. As they say, many hands make light work, and these boys certainly made light work of the tasks they were given. Envirolution sends a big thank you to the Boys Team Charity! As always, if you’re looking for a way to give back to your community, check out the Envirolution volunteer sign-up below.Read More →
