Youth Villages recognizes the hard work volunteers from Dell and Target performed this summer for the Wallace and Tallwood group homes in Nashville.

Target sent more than 21 volunteers to do an outside project at the Tallwood group home on one of the hottest days in Nashville history with temperatures reaching a high of 108 degrees. The group sealed the front porch and back deck, landscaped the yard and built a garden for the boys to tend to during the summer. Target also donated new lawn furniture for the home.

In May, a group of volunteers from Dell did landscaping and gardening at the Wallace Group Home. The volunteers followed up their hard work with a cookout for the Wallace girls and staff. Dell also invited the girls to the Dell workout facility to learn about exercise and nutrition. The girls attended a kickboxing class, walked on the outside track and learned crosstraining exercises.

At yet another time, Dell organized an employment workshop for the young adults in the transitional living program. The Dell volunteers worked one-on-one with the youth in the TL program on mock interviews, professionalism and job shadowing.

For their work with Youth Villages, Dell ProSupport was honored for its outstanding volunteer work in the corporate service category at the Hands On Nashville’s 26th annual Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Awards.

We are grateful for the efforts of both these outstanding organizations and their staff for their dedication to helping young people in Middle Tennessee.
