Williams Company works with Target and The Heart of America to remodel school media center10/05/11
Williams Company recently completed their third school library makeover as part of the Target & Heart of America Foundation READesign program. Hillsborough County School District’s Foster Elementary was chosen for this project and received a complete renovation of their existing media center. Williams Company provided the construction services with help from some of our valued subcontractor partners. “Being a part of this renovation was truly a blessing for us. Watching the reaction of the students as they saw the new media center for the first time was priceless,” said Williams Company Vice-President Rich Shannon. “Being able to give something back to the community that supports us while at the same time partnering with our great clients at Target and Hillsborough County Schools is a great position to be in,” added Mr. Shannon.
The READesign Library Makeover revitalizes elementary school libraries into warm, friendly places that engage children in learning, creating a love of reading. Each themed READesign Library Makeover includes vibrant paint, murals or original paintings by a nationally recognized artist, new furniture, and 1,000-2,000 new, high-quality library books. Since 2007, Target & Heart of America have renovated 118 libraries nationwide and will complete 42 more this year.
