COVENTRY TWP. Volunteers came together Saturday to help make improvements at Logan Field Park in Coventry.
Materials and labor were donated by Home Depot as a part of project Team Depot.
Merchandising Manager for the Arlington Road Home Depot Mike Morgan said the company likes to get involved with projects that can benefit the community. Morgan has worked for Home Depot for 17 years and said Team Depot takes place at all the stores to help communities out.
"It is our opportunity to be involved with Coventry and the surrounding community," Morgan said.
Six volunteers from Home Depot donated their time to take on the task of painting the fieldhouse along with the soccer building. Paint was donated by Behr Paint Corporation with blue and white colors being added to the buildings.
Chad Lucas, a Coventry resident, who is also involved with Coventry youth baseball and football said he wanted to contribute to help make improvements. Lucas said he worked several days to help get the fieldhouse ready for paint. He said a wall was rebuilt along with some new windows and doors being installed.
"I just wanted the kids to be proud of where they play," Lucas said.
The entire building was pressure washed by Mike Fagan earlier in the week to prepare it for being painted.
Lucas said the fieldhouse was originally built on donations in the 1970s and a plaque is displayed near the door which shows the original date along with a list of those involved with renovations in the 1990s.
"The township is flat broke," Lucas said. "If more people volunteer and step-up, we can keep Coventry Township going."
Lucas said he started the process to have renovations made late last year and it has been a process. He had to obtain permission from several people.
"It just took talking," Lucas said. "We have had a lot of support and it’s fantastic."
Coventry Township resident Don Lanni, who has six children, also assisted in the repairs.
"This is absolutely wonderful," Lanni said. "This is what the community needs to do, come together."
