Spence Elementary entrance gets makover

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A La Crosse Elementary school got a new appearance Saturday thanks to one business's Good Neighbor Program.

Bimbo Bakeries USA teamed up with the La Crosse School District to help give Spence Elementary a makeover.

Volunteers from Bimbo Bakeries along with parents and students from the La Crosse School district were on hand Saturday morning landscaping the main entrance.

Tony Calkins, production manager for Bimbo Bakeries, said teaming up with the school district is important because it shows appreciation to the school district.

"We've tried other avenues but they didn't work out as well. This works really well. It looks like a lot, but it's not a hard project, we just come and do it. This year everyone pretty much knew what to do, so they came in and  just started planting," Calkins said. 

This was the second year for the program, Fifteen people volunteered this year.
