This past weekend, the advisory board committee for the United Way Commercial Real Estate Networking event got hands-on in support of the ALICE program. ALICE children are from families who cannot afford the basics of housing, food, transportation, child care, and health care, despite working. John Carton of J. D. Carton & Son was a part of the team which helped transform a space at a childcare center in Morristown. Located inside the United Methodist Church, “Children on the Green” has been in business since 1994 and serves impoverished and homeless children. They truly needed our help! 

On Friday and Saturday, committee volunteers helped with moving, removing old shelves and ceiling tiles, and general prep work for the transformation. After this, they worked on spackling, priming, painting, new shelves, new ceiling tile, and the final move back. Thanks to the United Way, a critically needed infant room is now available and there is already a wait list for it.
