Two Springfield schools will benefit from a massive volunteer effort aimed at giving both schools a makeover.
Springfield Sharefest is hoping to find as many as 2,000 volunteers who can donate labor, materials or cash to assist in the big renovation projects at McClernand and Jane Addams elementary schools.
A similar project at Harvard Park Elementary two years ago has led to higher test scores and improved staff morale.
The head of Sharefest says improved surroundings create a better outlook… and better results.
