Last week, Aaron's surprised teens with a newly renovated Keystone Teen Center at the Boys & Girls Club of Pittsburgh's Sarah Heinz House on Friday.
Through a partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and input from the teen members, Aaron's associates and Club officials worked last Wednesday painting, decorating and furnishing a study and lounge area in a multipurpose space at the Club. Last Friday, local Aaron's associates and Club officials unveiled the new space, which is now equipped with new technology, sectionals, tables and chairs, sound systems and fresh coats of paint. Teens chose the special Sherwin-Williams™ paint colors for the rooms: Navel, Direct Green and Jay Blue.
Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto attended the surprise unveiling and congratulated the teens. "What an exciting space for these teens to learn how to interact with the community and grow as leaders," said Pittsburgh Mayor Peduto. "With public-private partnerships forged by companies like Aaron's, we are together building strong communities for our teens to develop as tomorrow's leaders."
This is the 14th Boys & Girls Club Keystone Makeover completed by Aaron's. The Aaron's team will be back to work next week in Portland.
