Over 50 bags of leaves raked, thanks to a group of freshmen looking to make an impact in their community. It's part of freshmen volunteer day, students attending Bucksport High School spend a day working hard cleaning the community to earn some of their required volunteer service hours.
"I think it's so important to start out young like this because then for the next four years, maybe they're willing to help out in their community and show some support to what our community need right now," said Robinson.
It's teaching kids to take pride and ownership of where they live.
"When people come here and look around, we want to see that it's clean and nice and that we know how to take care of the place," said Alexis Leeman, a freshman at the school.
"It's showing good work ethics and how to keep things looking nice and kept up," said Lawrenz.
"It makes you feel a lot better, knowing that you actually contributed to it," said Chaise Pierce, a freshman student at the school.
