“We wanted to get it painted and it had to be cleaned before it can be painted,” she said.

Mento gave the NJROTC a $200 donation, but the young military men and women said they would have come out to help anyway.

“We’re here to support the community and promote citizenship,” said Cadet Donald McLaughlin. “It makes me feel like we’re doing a really great thing.”

Cadet Commander Megan Grussing led the group.

“It is going to better the community, which is always a good thing,” Grussing said. “It’s also a good opportunity for the junior cadets to get some community service hours.”

George said her husband would paint the building after the cleanup and other preparations were complete.

“It’s going to be a couple of shades darker than the trim under the windows, then later dark gray and beige,” she said.
