Patriot Perspective: PLHS wants to help community in 'Day of Caring'

The second annual “Day of Caring” is an event where all the students, staff and volunteers representing Pequot Lakes High School (PLHS) give something back to all of our communities for everything they have given us!

The event is slated for Wednesday, May 7, and the students and staff of PLHS are looking for those who would like their help.

Senior citizens, homebound individuals and those living in the Pequot Lakes, Crosslake, Breezy Point, Nisswa, Jenkins and Ideal Corners areas who need assistance completing outdoor household projects are encouraged to apply.

The projects must be able to be completed within a five-hour time frame by a team of high school students and adult volunteers.

Projects may include washing exterior, ground floor windows; raking yards; cleaning up gardens and/or flowerbeds; or another outdoor project.

Homeowners must be at their home while the team of volunteers works on their project.

Those who apply and whose projects are accepted can expect a team of student and adult volunteers to arrive at their home between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. May 7, the “Day of Caring.” Students will bring their own lunches.

Registration forms may be accessed by clicking the “Day of Caring” link on the school website at Forms are also available in the high school office. The form must be complete, as all information on the form is needed to complete a project. Please describe the project so volunteers know what needs to be done and how long it may take.

For more information, call the PLHS office at 218-568-9210 or email High School Principal Chip Rankin at

Project assignments will be based on the date a request is received. Not all applications are guaranteed to be part of the Day of Caring event.

The volunteers will work on the projects rain or shine. In case of severe weather, cancellation information can be heard on local radio stations.

Registration forms must be submitted by Wednesday, April 30, to be considered.
