Starbucks Korea contributes to drawing wall painting at the Seongdong Youth Center


It has been scorching days for a while in Korea. Despite the weather, there are beautiful people who shared their talents for a place in need.


 
 
Seoul YWCA and Starbucks Korea did a volunteering activity which drew wall painting on the Seongdong Youth Center.
Seoul YWCA staffs, DCS(District CSR Specialist) Starbucks Korea, and Seongdong Youth Center alternative school students, all 68 people got together to make better environment of the Youth Center building.
 
Since the Youth Center has been built long time ago, there have been a number of places to be renovated. Thankfully, the drawing wall painting changed whole appearance of the classrooms, club activity rooms, stairs, even hallway.
 
 
In four hours, Seongdong Youth Center has reformed to a "Space for the positive change" with dreams and hopes on the paintings.
 
 
 
Seoul YWCA appreciates DCS Starbucks Korea staffs' efforts and hopes to work together again for such a great activity.
