Earth-friendly activities and information will be the order of the day as the SIFE kids help Hastings reduce, reuse and recycle.

For the past 27 years, volunteer teens and adults from St. Catherine's have been coming to St. Augustine for week-long stays on two occasions each summer to perform a variety of tasks for the elderly and others in need.

Add to that workers from the Housing Partnership, and it was difficult to find a spot to talk that wasn't occupied by someone painting a portion of the house, cutting lumber or performing one of a number of other tasks required to transform Bing's home.
