In addition to global youth day, Saturday I also saw folks from Hands on DC working in and around the home of the Clerks, Cardozo High School. Pictured above some folks from Deloitte were volunteering on a peace garden. Deloitte has a contingent of 45 volunteers who call themselves “the labor party” although one member emphasized that it was a literal designation not a political one. Well, whatever is it was really amazing to see so many people working together on such a great cause. Other volunteers cleaned the perimeter, painted inside and did some mulching among other tasks. In addition to Cardozo, Hands on DC provided approximately 2000 volunteers working in 26 other public DC schools. Right on. My faith in humanity has been restored for a couple of weeks. Check out some more photos of their good work after the jump.

More benefits to the garden.
