More than 350 Westminster Christian School students gave back to their community Thursday.
The Elgin school students visited more than 20 locations to help improve the greater Elgin area and help local organizations during the second annual Give Back Day, a day of public service.
"I love it. They are amazing and they are getting a lot accomplished," said Felicia King, chief operating officer of the YWCA in Elgin, who hosted some of the students and volunteers.
Many of the students started at 8:30 a.m. and worked through the end of the school day at 2:30 p.m.
About 130 Westminster Christian elementary students were also holding a generosity hike at the school, said Rich Engle, the director of mission advancement at Westminster Christian, "to learn about what giving is all about."
