A dozen or so Presentation Academy students spent half a day at the Casa Latina Catholic Worker in Old Louisville Nov. 10 offering their helping hands. They helped wash windows, walls and baseboards before covering the drafty windows with plastic, provided by Project Warm, to prepare the house for winter.

Laaliyah Brooks, in the foreground above right, washed baseboards at the Casa Latina with her classmate Ava Rowan. The young women are members of Presentation’s WE Day group, an organization that empowers young people to help change the world through compassionate action.
