Many good deeds done by many

Literacy Outreach celebrated Good Deeds Day on April 7. Good Deeds Day is a global event that helps unite communities by doing good deeds that benefit others. Fourteen volunteers gathered to do good at the Teo Prinster Learning Center. Windows were washed, fences were painted, and decorations were created.

Many good thanks are due to our volunteers: Adriana Ramos, Sheryl Doll, Ted Doll, Andie Scott, Becky Levin, Billy Varela, Christian Rosas, Brayan Angulo, Angel Rosas, Kelsey Dunkelberger, Mary Lou Haflinger and Americorp Volunteers: Veronica and Michael Capraro. A special thank-you to our Good Deeds Day organizer, William Rosas. Thor’s provided a delicious and nutritious lunch for all of the volunteers.
