ELMHURST – A group of Elmhurst women recently volunteered their time and efforts to renovate the staff break room at Ray Graham Association's Elmhurst Community Learning Center.

The women, who are members of 100+ Women Who Care in Elmhurst, replaced break room tables, purchased artwork and bulletin boards, installed a glass transom to improve lighting, and even purchased and refurbished a sideboard table for the staff’s microwave and coffee maker, according to an organization news release.

Ray Graham Association provides residential, employment, life skills and support services to more than 2,000 children and adults with disabilities and their families throughout DuPage County and the surrounding areas. Nearly 70 adults with disabilities are supported at the Elmhurst Community Learning Center, the release said.
