Guam - More than 50 participants from various businesses helped Guam's largest public elementary school Finegayan Elementary School in Dededo prepare for the new school year with a cleaner look.  Finegayan Principal Evangeline Iglesias says the school community project started with a phone call to Chugach Alaska's business coalition and from there nine businesses volunteered to paint the school, move library books, and plant greenery throughout the campus.

"What we're trying to do today is to get the building more presentable and knowing that how old the school is, we needed to get a new paint job so Home Depot donated some paints and we have Isla Paint Supply that donated some paint to help with the parking lot," Iglesias.

The donations helped the school address Public Health's concerns about peeling paint around the campus.
