Students from Washington Junior High School participated in the annual “Orange and Black Give Back Day” yesterday.  Connie Hoffman-Svenby from the Washington Junior High School says this was the 8th year students have been doing this project.  She says every student from the Junior High School took part.

Hoffman-Svenby says the goal of the venture is to have a positive effect on the community by lending a hand to local businesses and community members.  She adds 41 businesses took part in the give back day.

Students did projects between 9:00 and 12:00 yesterday morning and enjoyed the afternoon by eating ice cream and watching movies.
