Comcast Cares Day coordinator Kristina Chang (254) instructs volunteers in Central's auditorium Saturday April 30 as they prepared to tackle several beautification projects around the school.
Volunteers transformed this unsightly pile on the front lawn...
...removing branches, refreshing the soil and planting perennials...
....until they made this beautiful patch.

Things got more fun when the Phillies Phanatic arrived. How could they not? Central President Tim McKenna takes a break to take a photo.
The Phanatic also provided muscle.
The kids did a great job painting and only got little bits of paint in their hair.
The wall outside Central's baseball field also gets a fresh coat of paint thanks to volunteers.
Steve Burnstein (222) did most of the weeding and mulch laying around this tree, which will help protect its roots.
