Volunteerism – and Soundproofing?

Schools in the Valley District of Arizona really needed help – and they got it – in the form of cash and time donations from family and neighbors.

Instead of complaining to the township, or to the school board, the members of the cash-strapped school district did something very few others have thought about. They simply banded together to get the jobs that needed doing done.

Example? Two years ago, a group of parents climbed up to the ceiling of one school gymnasium to install soundproofing. Others simply donate items from their homes for use in classrooms. One guy even donated an old car to an autobody class.

If only the rest of the world would catch on to such a great attitude!
