Kids Help Beautify School

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Chaddock got a facelift today with a little help from Trees for Tomorrow.

A lucky group of students was given the chance to get out of class to help plant one of nine donated Maple trees along the driveway.

School officials say kids can learn a lot from being a part of projects like this.

"It's really important that our children see the support that they receive from the community and so any time we have an opportunity for them to see how the community supports them, and frankly how they can support the community as well, it's a win-win situation for everyone," said Chaddock Director of Development Jeff VanCamp. 

VanCamp says Trees for Tomorrow has planted more than 500 trees, but these are the first that aren't along a city street.
