The Boys Team Charity (btc) North Valley Chapter Class of 2013 recently teamed up with Civitan House in Central Phoenix for its senior project.

Civitan House is an assisted living facility that offers adults with disabilities a safe, loving environment that ensures their health, happiness and security.

The project included refurbishing cabinetry and landscaping. After many hours of planning, btc Class of 2013 spent two days scraping and painting, raking, moving dirt, hauling and spreading rock and cleaning outdoor common areas.

Seniors also had the pleasure of enjoying lunch and talking with residents during the project days.

According to Max McQueen, director of Civitan House, the seniors’ work allowed funding to be used for medical expenses and health insurance instead of maintenance of the facility.

As a culmination to the senior project, the btc senior class returned to Civitan House take a final tour and enjoy a celebration of cake and conversation with residents.
