Albany-- Over fifty students, teachers and volunteers came together today for project playground.

Every year the Home Depot donates time, money and people to refurbish a park in the Albany area. This year they chose Sherwood Forest, a park that belongs to Sherwood Acres Elementary school.

Marine volunteer Carlisha Gaines says she volunteers because she wants to give back to the community.

"Well, we noticed there's a lot of things that need to be done in the community and if everybody leaves it up to everybody else, it won't get done," said Gaines. "So, a couple of Marines decided to come out and do what we do best which is helping out everybody."

The workers arrived at the playground at eight this morning and after four hard hours of work, they were treated to a free meal of steak and salad at Outback Steakhouse.
