Extreme Team renovating Daybreak Youth Services
SPOKANE, Wash. — Mark Peterson and the KXLY 4 Extreme Team are working to renovate Daybreak Youth Services, a rehab center for local teens, this week.
Daybreak is home to up to 40 young women at a time who receive inpatient treatment for 30 to 90 days. This facility has not been touched other than minor repairs for 15 years and so the walls, the carpet, everything in here is dated and depressing, and that’s two things this center that treats teens with drug and alcohol addiction, absolutely can’t be.
It’s important for these teens recovery that daybreak be more inviting. That’s where the Extreme Team comes in, with some major help from many sponsors including Target, Moss Adams, and PAML.
Extreme Team volunteers have spent the entire day painting, landscaping, putting in carpet, and they’ve also been wiring for sound, all to make a difference in the lives of teenage girls who need help.
“I was absolutely amazed by all the people, hundreds of people from all over the community. PAML had to do a drawing to see how many people could come and volunteer here today, so it’s nothing short of amazing, and we’re indebted to KXLY forever,” Daybreak development director Kathy Kramer said.
Work continues at Daybreak through this Thursday.
