Tri State Restorations Helps Local Special Needs Community Through Volunteering Efforts
Tri State Restorations works alongside industry association partners Property Management Association (PMA), Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington (AOBA) and the Chesapeake Chapter of Community Associations Institute, to help take care of the Washington DC Metropolitan area special needs community through several annual volunteering efforts.
Stephen Knolls School – Silver Spring, MD The Stephen Knolls School provides special education for students living in the southern part of Montgomery County, with ages ranging from three to twenty-one. They work to create a diverse, interactive learning environment which is designed to meet the individual needs of every student that attends.
"This school has a special place in my heart because it's one of the many DMV area schools my special needs little brother attended. I know from personal experience how little these kids are provided by the county for their success and anything you can do to help instantly makes a huge difference in their lives. Thank you to the Property Management Association for coordinating this truly rewarding day of giving back, I will always volunteer here when given the opportunity." Adrianne Gracias, Director of Marketing, Tri State Restorations.
Marley Glen Day School – Glen Burnie, MD
Since 1972, the Marley Glen School has been dedicated to serving children with special needs. They are a public, separate, day school that serves approximately 150 students by providing full-day programs for students with moderate to severe developmental and special needs, ages five to twenty-one.
"Thank you to the Chesapeake Chapter of CAI for engineering such a rewarding day of giving back to students who truly deserve it, we were able to turn their school grounds into a true natural habitat and provide spaces for them to learn about growth and renewal." Adrianne Gracias, Director of Marketing, Tri State Restorations.
James E. Duckworth School – Beltsville, MD
For the last 20+ years, James E. Duckworth School has served students with disabilities ages 5 through 21 within the communities of Adelphi, College Park, Hyattsville, Laurel, Beltsville, and Greenbelt in Prince George's County. The school believes that, "Teaching and learning is a top priority regardless of ability and that all students can learn to reach their full potential. [Their] students will become independent and transition into the community as contributing members."
"I had the pleasure of working alongside fellow Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington (AOBA) members to help out a fantastic school in need. Thanks to the entire Community Service Committee and BrightView Landscapes for helping us to revitalize the James E. Duckworth School!" Adrianne Gracias, Director of Marketing, Tri State Restorations.
