GICC staff and students clean up the community
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Grand Island Central Catholic staff and students came together Wednesday to help make the community and their school a cleaner place. Each year, the schools go out of their way to polish up local nonprofit facilities, churches and pick up trash along the highway and in the parks — it’s all a part of their service day.
Senior Gage Steinke has had a hand in keeping the community clean for the last seven years now and said he’s looked forward to the day each time around.
“It really just makes you feel like you’re making a difference and helping people out in ways that they wouldn’t usually get that help, so. It’s fun to go out of your way to help people,” Steinke said.
Not only did students and staff spend their day cleaning up, but some of them also painted and landscaped.
After a busy day, everyone came back to GICC to clean up their own building. Students were also treated to a root beer float and time outdoors following their service day.
