GE Healthcare employees get local schools ready for students
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Local GE Healthcare employees spent the day sprucing up local schools before students head back to class.
CBS 58 caught up with some of them at Hayes Bilingual Middle School in Milwaukee Wednesday morning. It was part of the 25th annual GE Healthcare Community Service Day.
Workers updated the playground, painted hallways, got the gym ready and created murals.
"It's just something we're really proud of," said GE Healthcare President Everett Cunningham. "Not only do we provide technologies and products for health systems, hospitals, doctors, patients, but we think the added benefit of being part of GE is really volunteering for the community, so we're excited."
Hayes was one of 19 schools in the Milwaukee area freshened up by more than 2,000 GE Healthcare employees Wednesday.
