United Way Day of Caring – May, 2018

Great day at the School 35 Community Gardens and the Charette Garden for the United Way Day of Caring on 5/10! The U of R volunteers spent their 4th year with our team (Frank, Susan, Janet and Sara) and have pledged for many more!! They are truly amazing. They bring commitment, enthusiasm and grit every single year. There is no project which they wouldn’t take on!! A great group, and a shout out to Wegmans for sustaining us (hydration and lunch!) and to Frank, Janet, Susan and Sara for their continuing commitment to our Community Garden!
