October 5, 2007

WHEATON, MD—Leading professional services firm Ernst & Young LLP announced that on Friday, October 5, more than 700 employees would volunteer a day of service in the Greater Washington area.

– Pulling alien/invasive plants

– Removing trash from a stream bed within Brookside Gardens.
