The two organizations working together as a part of the Community Outreach and Day of Caring.

 Home Depot bringing a truck full of landscaping pebble and stone to the table along with five volunteers to help make the improvements to the entrance of the Seton Catholic Central school.

Tioga Gardens also playing a huge role bringing together 3 volunteers and a truckload full of both dirt and mulch.

Tim Houlihan, assistant manager at Johnson City's Home Depot says, "It just goes back to our core values of giving back to the community we do little projects like this all over the place for different factions of our community, we're diverse in our community and we try to give back as well".

Some of the renovations added to the high school facility were a garden bed, adding firelight landscaping materials and plants, as well as planting trees in the near future according to Houlihan.

Houlihan said that a former student was the one to reach out and bring awareness to the project and after taking a look at it Houlihan said it was within the scope of what they like to do for the community.
