Day of Caring lasts an extra day for two schools

Posted: Updated:
HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) - The annual "Day of Caring"  lasted an extra day Friday as TVA employees helped give the campus of the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy a nice cleanup.

Volunteers rolled up their sleeves  and trimmed shrubs, pulled weeds, spread mulch and planted flowers.

Volunteers say it's an opportunity for federal workers to give their time and donate to different charities, but it's about more than just the money.

Each year, federal employees have the opportunity to contribute to charities or organizations of their choice through the combined federal campaign.


And volunteers are working to give Howard High School a better cafeteria. 

Thirteen workers from Providence Service Corporation and Camelot Care Centers painted the school's cafeteria all afternoon Friday.  

It's the local group's first ever international day of service. 

The group came to paint the cafeteria, but officials say the work doesn't stop there. The project is one of hundreds that PSC staff across the nation did to give back to their communities.
