San Joaquin Valley College Fresno staff and student volunteers can take a deep bow for their performance Saturday, September 8th at the Warnors Theatre on Fulton Street. Nine volunteers rolled up their sleeves and grabbed vacuums, gum-scrapers and handi-wipes to bring a shine back to the historical downtown theatre as part of the United Way’s Day of Caring.

SJVC’s volunteer team spent the day cleaning the theatre, wiping down all 2,100 seats, vacuuming the carpet and seats, wiping down walls and doors, sweeping and scraping gum off the floors inside and outside entry and cleaning inside service areas.

“A big thank you to San Joaquin Valley College who helped convey the vision and message of United Way, which is mobilizing the caring power of communities,” says Melissa Tav, Marketing and Resource Development Assistant for United Way.

SJVC Day of Caring volunteers were Kim Soares, Kim Dickson, Sat Sohal, Sandra LeCorre, Minerva Zepeda, Maybo Heu, Chris Barger, Frank Phillips (all staff) and Nicholas Martinez, a Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration (HVACR) program student.

“The Warnors Theatre was built in 1928 and we are glad we have had an opportunity to be a part of the preservation and restoration of this historic theatre,” says SJVC volunteer Maybo Heu. “Our team saw that there was a lot of work to do and worked extra hard to make sure that the work was completed. Everyone did a great job and look forward to volunteering again next year.”

Great job, SJVC Fresno!
