Volunteering in the Community

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019

On September 20th several STEP students earned volunteer hours by participating in a project sponsored by the Des Moines Park and Recreation. STEP students teamed up with other volunteers from Wells Fargo to help restore several headstones in the historic Woodland Cemetery just northwest of Central Campus. Des Moines Park and Rec staff taught the volunteers how to do the four-step process to clean moss and debris that has built up on the stones. Between the morning and the afternoon volunteer groups, over 400 stones were cleaned and restored.
