The United Way of Central Maryland and Depend joined forces Tuesday to lead volunteers in sprucing up the Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School Recreation Center in Bolton Hill.

Volunteers spent the day painting, cleaning and more to make the space more suitable for use. A press release from United Way of Central Maryland said that Bolton Hill has been in “desperate need” of a recreation center since the unrest in Baltimore last April.

The recreation center provides a place for parents to apply for jobs, seniors to keep cool during hot summer days, neighborhood meetings, kids to get free lunches when school is out and a place for kids to spend time in the evenings and on weekends.

The Eutaw-Marshburn Recreation Center is located at 1624 Eutaw Place, Baltimore, 21217.
