“What about my job?” says a volunteer painter looking for a little credit. “Look at all the chairs I did.”

Two dozen area Target workers are helping to update the library at Perth Amboy High School.

“We’re refurbishing and repurposing some of their existing furniture and we’re also donating new furniture,” says team leader Wanda Catalan.

One of her workers, Antonio Quirindongo, just graduated from the school in 2009.

“You know, it’s nice to try to do something for the school that I was in. You know, make it better for future students,” says Antonio.

New tables and chairs, plus an online media center are expected to be finished by Wednesday.
