Day of Caring Benefits Schools

More than 1,300 volunteers were out and about in Friday today as part of the United Way’s Nancy Perry Day of Caring.  Highland Park High School, Lowman Hill Elementary and the Pine Ridge Center were among the recipients of the volunteer work.  The volunteers from local companies and businesses planted trees, cleared debris and spread mulch at the schools.  The volunteers included Superintendent Dr. Julie Ford.  Volunteers helped out at 80 locations throughout Topeka.
