Volunteers lend a hand cleaning up Mosinee school



What a difference a couple of extra hands have made.

"They just did a great job, everyone just really worked hard, you know, we're done by noon," said Administrator David Beringer.

Dozens of volunteers started early at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School in Mosinee.

"It's just a complete mess, just a disaster, there's no other word for it," said David Faulkner.

Hannah Anklam is a sophomore at the school.

"I looked in the windows and it was kind of, wow," said Anklam.

She said although school is canceled, there's no where she'd rather be.

"We all started at 9 and it was just, we've gotten so much done, in the however long we've been here, it's just awesome," said Anklam.

Although you'd expect students to take the week off, leaving parents scrambling to keep them busy, school leaders said they aren't finding that at their school.

"We probably have about 70% of our students working and their families and people that don't even have kids in our school are here helping," said Beringer.

Students said it's all about giving back.

"We all have received so much help from the school, and we're all just so glad to be able to go back and just help the school now," said Anklam.

The help just kept coming.

"It's gone real smoothly, everybody knows exactly where to take what and gets thrown out, what gets saved and we're working real well together," said Faulkner.

Leaving school administrators with one message.

"I'm just humbled that the people care that much to come and take time out to come and help," said Beringer.

A dedicated group, ready to get things back to normal.
