Donato recently volunteered his time at his daughter’s school by installing 100 daffodils donated by the White Plains Beautification Foundation. WPBF is commemorating it’s 50th year anniversary! And to celebrate they have purchased 6000 daffodils to place in visible locations and have donated 100 daffodils to elementary schools in White Plains. Congratulations on your anniversary and thank you for making a difference. The best of luck to those who donated their time installing 100 Master daffodils at selected schools.
