In recognition of “Spruce Up Winona Day,” Saint Mary’s University Volunteer Services organized a group of student volunteers to help out Winona non-profit agencies. Workers helped with spring cleaning, yard work, painting, sorting clothes and a variety of other tasks. Approximately 175 Saint Mary’s students teamed up throughout the afternoon. Sixty-one individuals and organizations – including area schools, The Salvation Army, St. Anne Hospice and the Catholic Worker House – were assisted.
