CBS 21 AND PAUL DAVIS RESTORATION TO REVITALIZE HARRISBURG CITY PARK
Harrisburg, PA, June 13, 2016 - CBS 21 and Paul Davis Restoration are working together to revitalize the 7th & Radnor Sports Park in Harrisburg. The goal of this project is to provide a beautiful and safe place for neighborhood families to enjoy.
Volunteers from CBS 21 and Paul Davis Restoration will work on repairing building structures, renovating the baseball field and basketball courts, painting, and other general maintenance. All supplies will be donated by Paul Davis Restoration and All-Type Roofing. The project will commence on Friday, June 17th and be completed on Saturday, June 18th.
"As a local television station we appreciate the responsibility we have to support the communities where we broadcast," said CBS 21 General Manager Bill Bradley. "This is another wonderful opportunity for CBS 21 to give back. Our entire staff is dedicated to making this project a success."
"All of us at Paul Davis Restoration are grateful to have this opportunity to help our local communities," said Stephen Rotay, President/CEO of Paul Davis Restoration Mid-Atlantic. "The parks project gives us a way to positively impact as many people as we can."
