From Cathy Locke:
More than 100 cadets from the California Highway Patrol Academy are participating in community service projects today, assisting the Sacramento Children's Home and Sacramento Habitat for Humanity.
Until 3 p.m., more than 50 cadets will be landscaping, refinishing cabinets and baseboards and painting living quarters at the Sacramento Children's Home at 2750 Sutterville Road in Sacramento.
Another group of approximately 50 cadets will spend the day planting trees, installing irrigation and drip systems, painting and doing general cleanup for Habitat for Humanity projects at 3824 Mahogany and 2773 Forrest streets in Sacramento.
The academy's 27-week instructional program helps reinforce the CHP's mission of providing safety, service and security to California residents, as well as contributing to the community in which they serve, an agency news release states.
