A group of eight- to 10-year-olds in the after-school program at the L.A Lee YMCA/Mizell Community Center rolled up their shirt sleeves and got to work constructing gingerbread buildings under the supervision of experts, the team from Excel Construction of Florida.
There were plenty of smiles to go around as the Excel Construction of Florida team volunteered their time and guidance to help the kids build their masterpieces. Amidst an explosion of colorful sprinkles, icing, festive hats and tasty gingerbread men, the group enjoyed interacting together in teams to build their gingerbread house creations.
“We love kids, and we love what we do so this was really special for us,” said Eric Wolf, president of Excel Construction of Florida. “The kids at the YMCA were quick learners and created some impressive buildings, which is pretty remarkable given their age. Who knows, one of them may someday think about working in our industry. We hope this experience was as memorable for them as it was for us.”
