The 11th Annual Day of Caring was bigger and better than ever! Introduced in 2011, and held every year at the start of May, the Day of Caring is an opportunity for students at Little Falls Community High School to get into the community and assist individuals with complete outdoor projects. Student teams led by school staff are joined by teams of community members to help with raking and stick removal, window washing, flower bed clean up, and more.
This year 91 teams tackled 172 sites in Little Falls, Randall, Flensburg, and Sobieski for seniors or those who are homebound or disabled. An additional seven sites in Little Falls were also cleaned up, including Linden Hill, the Convention and Visitor's Bureau, Senior Center, Lions Park, Lindbergh Lions Park, Washington Park, and Pine Tree Park. Teams were comprised of over 600 students and nearly 400 community volunteers and 100 district staff members. In total, over 1100 total volunteers took place in the Day of Caring.
High School Principal Tim Bjorge was proud of the work of the students and grateful for the community's support yet again. "We want to thank our 73 sponsors, volunteers, and partners listed on the community banners, it’s because of their generosity and participation that makes this event is possible."
Thank you to everyone who made the Day of Caring a huge success! It was an amazing day!
