Residents of Cleveland’s Buckeye neighborhood will have brighter and better spaces to spend their time in, thanks to the Cleveland Cavaliers and their partner, Rust-Oleum. Using a wide variety of Rust-Oleum products, the Cavs have renovated the outdoor basketball court and indoor senior room at East End Neighborhood House.

On Thursday, the Cavs officially unveiled the restored spaces, hosting approximately 50 children and 20 seniors from the neighborhood who regularly use the facilities. Cavs in-arena host Ahmaad emceed a press conference on the refurbished court, featuring Cavs CEO Len Komoroski, Rust-Oleum Manager, PR, Vince Pierre and more. Following the press conference, the VIPs and guests officially opened the space with a ribbon cutting. The kids then took part in a basketball clinic, while the VIPs interacted with them on the court and also visited with the seniors in their revitalized indoor space.
For the outdoor space, the Cavs and Rust-Oleum repainted and branded the court, replaced the hoops’ nets and equipment, provided new basketballs, painted and landscaped and more. For the indoor senior room, the Cavs and Rust-Oleum painted, replaced furniture, countertops and blinds.
