Project Shine spruces up Independence schools

Posted: Updated:
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Once again, volunteers came together to spruce up Independence public schools before classes resume this fall.

Project Shine started in 2007 when Independence took over some schools that had been in the Kansas City School District.

The efforts since then have saved the Independence district about $600,000.

Altogether, 1,000 volunteers participated in Saturday's event.

Volunteers say it helps give students pride in their school when classes kick off in the fall. The volunteers feel a sense of accomplishment in helping a worthy cause.

Volunteers also did landscaping work such as trimming bushes and planting flowers.
