El Jacobs said she had quite a crew of Lake Park-Audubon High School students working at her house for Day of Caring. “This crew arrived at our home at 9 a.m. with rakes and a lot of energy. In an hour and a half they had raked our garden, around our house, cleaned the flower beds and carried out the deck furniture for us,” Jacobs said. SUBMITTED PHOTO5 / 5
