Wolves Staff Volunteers At Farnsworth Aerospace School

The Minnesota Timberwolves staff volunteered its time on Thursday toward helping make improvements to the building and playground at Farnsworth Aerospace School in St. Paul. The event, which began at 9 a.m. and stretched to 4 p.m., included approximately 80 members of the Wolves organization teaming together to help get several projects done over the course of one day.

The groups worked together to put a new coach of blacktop and sealant on the outdoor playground, and they also created a new basketball court by putting up two new hoops. The group landscaped outside the East entrance, removed thistles and other weeds from another area of the school grounds and also re-painted and added Timberwolves and Lynx logos to the library.

The Wolves worked closely with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, an organization that brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners as well as area schools and community centers. Located in Minneapolis, Rebuilding Together began serving the Twin Cities area in 1997.

This is the fifth year the Timberwolves and Rebuilding Together Twin Cities have partnered up.

“Everyone is teaming up to make this possible,” Wolves Community Relations Manager Matt Makovec said. “We want to say thank you to Farnsworth for hosting us as well as Rebuilding Together for teaming up with us, and the many staff that has donated their time. In just one day, we’re going to donate more than 500 hours to the city, and we’re happy to do that because we want to support the community that supports us.”
