Daily Herald Report

More than 100 volunteers tackled dozens of home-maintenance projects Saturday as part of the 18th A-May-Zing Mundelein's Annual Day of Caring.

They cleaned windows, raked and mowed lawns and planted flowers at an estimated 40 homes. Most of the properties belong to senior citizens who needed assistance taking care of the tasks.
