Over 150 volunteers arrived at Cass Community Social Services, Detroit, for Make a Difference Day, an annual event organized by the PTOC. "Working as a team is better than working alone, and it was fun!" Amanda Vieira, 8th grader, exclaims.
Students packed donations, collected trash outside, and created recycled door mats. Ainsley Smith, elementary student, volunteered to make hamburgers with high school students. "If we were homeless it would be nice to have people helping, like we're helping today," Smith says.
Over $5,000 was donated in total, enough to purchase a roof for a tiny home that Cass Community Social Services constructs for low-income residents.
