On this day, our students and staff join forces to assist non-profit organizations, church groups, and elderly individuals who require support. Tasks range from spring cleaning and yard work to washing windows, mulching gardens, cleaning vehicles, and painting porches. Funds raised by our students and staff are used to "sponsor" the day's activities and are dedicated to addressing a need identified by the students and administration within the school. This year, we aim to raise $20,000. To donate https://www.canadahelps.org/.../great-lakes.../p2p/CSD-2024/
