“I learned to work with other people as a group and how to appreciate all the work that other people do for us without even thinking about it,” said Bangor High School Junior Ella Janisch.

Community Service Day is also an opportunity for middle schoolers and high schoolers–who don’t see each other that often–to make memories.
