P1030711Welch Allyn volunteers transformed PEACE, Inc.’s Lafayette Head Start on Friday, July 19.  As a part of the company’s 4th Annual Beacon of Quality – A Show of Hands event, dedicated and skilled Welch Allyn volunteers repainted the building’s exterior, revamped the site’s landscaping, and remodeled its garden area and playground.  Volunteers worked for more than four hours on the projects.


“We had such a great response from employees during the first three years of our ‘Show of Hands’ volunteer day, that we decided to continue it for a fourth year,” said David Allyn, director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Welch Allyn.  Welch Allyn employees see this event as a great way of reaching out to their neighbors in Onondaga and Cayuga Counties and giving back to the communities where they live, work and play.

PEACE, Inc. Lafayette Head Start provides comprehensive early childhood programming  to 33 low-income three to five year-olds and their families and is located at 2777 Route 11 North, LaFayette, NY 13084.
