More than 200 volunteers descended on 100-year-old Hooper Elementary School June 4 to beautify the school grounds. Efforts included painting murals and positive affirmations, landscaping and general painting. Additionally, a food and clothes drive was held as well. The event was coordinated by volunteers with Operation Project HOPE (Helping Other People Everyday) who believe they can make a difference in a world simply because they are committed to doing so.
