One volunteer said she is proud to have made a difference in her home.

“I feel really good that I was apart of a group of people who made an impact in various areas around our city,” Wilmington Chamber of Commerce President Natalie English said.

Some of the locations were DC Virgo Prep Academy, Bradley Creek Elementary, the Brigade Boys and Girls Club, and dozens more. After the volunteers hard work they all celebrated at Hugh MacRae Park.
