Day Of Caring Projects Include Rain Garden

Posted: Updated:

 Thousands of volunteers pull together to improve our community.

The United Way's "Day Of Caring" kicked off this morning at ONEOK Field with breakfast.

After that, volunteers spread out all across the metro to complete a number of projects.

And that included a Rain Garden at Remington Elementary School.

The garden reduces flooding and improves water quality.

It's the first of five here in Tulsa.

Kevin Gustavson works for the Conservation Commission of Oklahoma.

 "So we have five scheduled. This is the first one we've started construction on. So these are demonstrations of how the process will work. And hopefully this will help catch on with businesses and homes and communities throughout the community."

Tulsa has the largest "Day Of Caring" in the country.

3,500 people from 135 companies volunteer their time and talent year after year.
