The American Society of Concrete Contractors’s Decorative Concrete Council has announced that their community project for 2015 will take place Nov. 2-6, 2015, at the Tamassee Salem Elementary School near Seneca, South Carolina. ASCC members regularly donate their time and skills on projects that benefit children, veterans and other community groups. In 2013, the Western Kentucky Veterans Center received nearly 5,000 square feet of stained and stenciled concrete in a therapeutic garden. Last year, volunteers headed to the south side of Chicago to bring a whimsical seaside adventure to the Good News Day Care Center. In May of this year, ASCC provided the decorative foundation for a new Veterans Memorial in Colorado.
The next community project will take place at Tamassee Salem Elementary School near Seneca, South Carolina. Located two hours from Atlanta or one hour from Greenville, South Carolina, this schools sits in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The students at TSE are generally from less fortunate homelife situations. The ASCC and volunteers hope to take the 5,000 square feet of concrete in the courtyard that is used for recess and turn it into an adventure playground. Using overlayments, dyes, stains and a huge amount of creativity, the ASCC hopes to give the children something to look forward to each day.
Details on material and labor will be announced in the coming weeks. If you want to volunteer or donate in any way towards this project, please contact ASCC Decorative Specialist Todd Scharich on the Decorative Hotline at (888) 783-5288 or by email at [email protected]
