"They're doing what can't happen during staff and typical school hours, they're here to do the neglected tasks, scrubbing and cleaning the ceilings, the walls, painting out at the bus curb," said Jamie Saunders, president and CEO of United Way of Rochester. They're doing the wonderful spring clean-up. It all adds to the beauty of this building, which is incredible, but makes this a space of vibrancy and so they can continue the great service for the students." 

Day of Caring is the largest one-day community volunteer event in Rochester.
