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.
At Agnes Radakovitz' house near Banbury Road about 25 Carmel High School students 16 to 18 years old were working cleaning outside windows, weeding, raking, edging the sidewalk, using a blower to clear the sidewalks and fertilizing the grass.
Village and police officials organized the event.
In 2013, 119 Mundelein residents, including families, Scout troops, churches, local organizations and businesses volunteered to participate in A-May-Zing Mundelein.
