Engineers Without Borders repair flood damaged facility at the Boys and Girls Club


BINGHAMTON, NY  -- Binghamton University students, faculty and staff along with associates from Lowe's Home Improvement Center will upgrade a flood-damaged portion of the Boys and Girls Club of Western Broome from 9 a.m. to 5p.m. Saturday, November 22.

The Binghamton University chapter of Engineers Without Borders is organizing the project with assistance from the University's Physical Facilities Department, faculty from the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science, as well as volunteers from Lowe's Home Improvement.

Throughout the day, volunteers will work to improve the design of the Club's storage facility to prevent future damage. Children from the Boys and Girls Club, located on Clubhouse Rd. in Endicott, will be on hand from noon to 3 p.m. to take part in an egg drop learning project.

The University's chapter of Engineers Without Borders works to improve the quality of life in disadvantaged communities by utilizing environmentally and economically sustainable technology and engineering solutions to develop communities.

The event is sponsored by Lowe's and the Watson School. Lowe's will donate materials for the project as well as provide employees to help with the construction.
