Operation Paintbrush, Department of Community Revitalization

A resident sent a note to Varina Supervisor Tyrone Nelson for work done by Team Excel through the Department of Community Revitalization’s Operation Paintbrush program. Operation Paintbrush organizes community volunteers to paint the homes of residents who need this assistance. Team Excel is a group of students who provide hands-on service to the community. It consists of seventh through 12th graders at Varina and Henrico high schools as well as John Rolfe and Wilder middle schools. The students are assisted by their families and other mentors. The resident said she appreciates how Henrico cares for its older residents. Thanks to Team Excel and Community Revitalization!
